The Big Idea is a gameshow that aired on Sky One in 2006. Hosted by Richard Bacon, the show aimed to find the country's best new business idea, with the public voting for the winner who would receive £100,000 to invest in their concept. Regional heats took place in Manchester and London, then in every episode three mentors introduced two of the products they backed from the regionals. Scrapheap Challenge's Dick Strawbridge would then apply some quirky product testing.
