And they meet one of its surprising beneficiaries – the millionaire, Lamborghini driving 'super tutor'� who has made his fortune from parents desperate to get their kids into university.

The team films him in action at Beacon College - whose 40,000 students come from schools all over Hong Kong, doing long evening classes on top of a full day at school.
