Inside Story - 1976 - The Market
First transmitted in 1976, film cameras follow traders in foreign exchange, metals, stocks and shares in the City of London as they speculate and hope to make a profit.
First transmitted in 1976, film cameras follow City of London traders in foreign exchange, metals, stocks and shares; money lenders who deal in millions of pounds at a time; and Lloyds underwriters who bet that an accident will never happen and risk losing their shirt if it does. This is a world of frantic face-to-face dealing which will soon be transformed by cheaper, computer-led dealing systems, satellite communications and fibre optic cables to create a fast-moving global market, worlds away from the street markets that they once resembled.
