He came across as massively patronising and oily
Wd on winning a fortune and then losing it.
He is not 197 iq so to start an interview with a lie doesn't endear him
Most of his profitable exploits were seeming totally steered by his consul/trainer
Left to himself he did £100 million
Smart guy

Enjoyed watching all four parts this morning when I should have been compiling my placepot.

Anybody notice he's a dead ringer for the late John Sessions? (if you can imagine him with a mullet...)

He does a good impression of Lester P.

Could have gone on stage with that.

I watched part 1 last Sunday and then the next 3 today. I loved Ramsden in the 80's and still have time for him now.

BUT, let's think about it for a bit. A supposed IQ of 197, he devises a way of trading the Japanese stock and bond market to make hundreds of millions, he soars right to the top, becomes the 57th richest guy in Europe and was friends with Peter O'Sullivan and many other big hitters from all walks of life - yet he seems to want to relate stories now about being upside down in the bushes at a p*ss-up, or on the razzle in the Ascot car park, and other gaffs. There is something that now bothers me about that.

I am sure his life contained many great achievements yet his interviews were somewhat centered on a 'lads culture'. No, I am sad to hear him talk like that. 

Nearly winning 13 million, or actually copping 5 million is great and bl**dy good luck to him but the very best punters and money-men operate almost totally under the radar - and, in the end, Laddies got it all back, and a lot more, from him.

I still enjoyed watching the interview but I'm left with the thought that if he had stayed in our memory as the big hitter from the 1980's it would have been that bit better. Thinking about the interviews, I'd like to do a book with him called 'The Real Terry Ramsden'.

It goes without saying, though, that I wish him all the best for the future.

Obviously there was a big drinking culture in the city in the 70s& 80s,funnily enough though despite the stories terry wasn’t a particularly big drinker.

I had an interview at a City moneybrokers in the 80s and the chap was literally bouncing off the walls as he led me down the corridor.

Said with his tongue in cheek.
