The man at the centre of the well-publicised BBC mistake expert interview, Guy Goma, seems set for success.

Goma turned up at the BBC looking for work. He was mistaken for an expert and interviewed live on News 24 as an expert, commenting on the Apple Computer versus Apple Corps case.

A report from the Independent states that since the interview broadcast, Goma has been inundated with money-making offers, including book deals and even the chance of a Hollywood movie.

He now has a publicist, has signed a TV ad deal and is "in talks" for more.
