The final episode of The Love Of Money tells the story of how close the world came to total economic collapse last autumn.
For the first time the key players tell of how they battled to prevent a new great depression – and look at what this has cost the world. Even today, few realise how close society came to a truly catastrophic collapse of the very foundation of the modern world.
The story is told by the people who took the decisions: British Prime Minister Gordon Brown; Brazil's President Lula; finance ministers including the United States' Tim Geithner; the UK's Alistair Darling; Germany's Peer Steinbruck; France's Christine Lagarde; and Brian Lenihan from Ireland. Central bankers, including the Bank of England's Mervyn King and, for the first time, the behind-the-scenes officials, tell the ups and downs of the month in which they held the fate of the world in their hands.
Downing Street adviser Baroness Shriti Vadera says: "It does make my blood run cold to think of how close the whole global system was to collapse."

Meanwhile, as Asif is making a fortune selling ice pops, Darrel overhears Lee Ann and Charlie talking about redundancies and convinces himself that he's facing the chop.
