PLEASE HELP: If you have more clips or even full episodes, please do get in touch!

‘Greed’ was an international cash prize game show which applied similar gameplay conventions to that of ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’. Adapted from Fox’s original American series, the UK version was hosted by Jerry Springer and had a £1 million jackpot. It aired on Channel 5 from May 18th to June 9th 2001, ending after just 11 episodes.

To my knowledge the UK series has never been repeated, and there have been no other clips from it uploaded to YouTube. After sifting through various websites, I managed to locate TWO clips which I have uploaded here for entertainment purposes only; I do not intend any infringement of copyright by doing so.

This particular clip is of the final question in the series from Episode 11.

The American version (with Chuck Woolery) was a whole lot better than this. That set and format looked so much better.

If they perfectly adapted the American format, I think this show could succeed about anywhere now. It was a great show, but everywhere it premiered, it was at the height of the Millionaire craze and in this peculiar butchered format. I'm certain that's why it failed.

Angela shouldn't have begged. Look at it this way, she set herself up as the next Terminator target.

since they didn't give the categories for the last 4 questions, it was kinda obvious that they didn't want to give away the big money.

I take it the host didn't provide any categories on this version.

We also had the same show in Russia, but it wasn't popular. BTW, has anyone ever won the jackpot in British "Greed"?

I think this is one of the very few game shows on Channel 4 or Channel 5 to air once a week. All other game shows that have aired on Channel 4 and Channel 5 have aired daily even if it aired at night.

I like it but it doesn't feel as dramatic as the American version. Maybe it's the music, although I like it, it doesn't have the same tension as the American. The lighting on the set is too bright and cheerful in my opinion, I like the dark vault-like setting on the other one. This is one the rare shows where the American version spawns the UK one, and the American one outdoes it in my opinion. This is not a bad show because it holds onto the format (and that format is killer) but it's no surprise this show didn't work in the UK considering it failed pretty badly in the US as well.

To those asking why that particular contestant's name is Pooee, earlier in the episode (before the start of this clip), she said what her actual name was (can't remember what, though) but a relative of hers that was only young couldn't pronounce it, so said 'Pooee' as a nickname.

Jerry Springer was actually born in London, but based in the U.S. due to his long-running talk show that just won't quit.

Jerry Springer hosted the UK version of Greed!?… No wonder that version didn't last long. The US version only lasted a little less than a year.
