In the five years since the crash that brought the world’s economy to its knees, bankers have lurched from one crisis to another.

Scandal after scandal has raised questions about their pay, their values and their judgement. After the industry received billions in tax-payer bail outs, the public is in no mood to forgive and forget. 

Interviewing a range of important figures in the financial and political sector, including those intimately involved with the meltdown of 2007 / 2008, this new series will delve behind the scenes of a crisis that brought the global banking system to the brink of collapse.
