Bankers
In 2008 the financial crisis swept across the modern world. Today, banks are still at the eye of the storm. This three-part BBC documentary series examines recent scandals that have shaken the financial sector, and the revelations of complacency, greed and recklessness that shattered trust in the system. Combining rigorous journalism with access to key players, the series asks what bankers, regulators and policy-makers have learnt since 2008. And, in the process of making the City of London and Wall Street pay the price for weaknesses in regulation, leadership and ethics, is there a danger of inflicting as much suffering on the wider economy as on the banks?
