Meltdown: The Secret History of the Global Financial Collapse is the story of the bankers who crashed the world, the leaders who struggled to save it and the ordinary families who got crushed. The CBC’s Terence McKenna takes viewers behind the headlines and into the backrooms at the highest levels of world governments and banking institutions, revealing the astonishing level of backstabbing and tension behind the scenes as the world came dangerously close to another Great Depression. He also tells the stories of desperate U.S. homeowners facing foreclosure, disillusioned Ontario autoworkers, and furious employees in France who kidnap their own bosses. Since the financial meltdown began, trillions of dollars have been spent rescuing banks and jumpstarting economies, yet recovery remains fragile. The millions around the world who lost homes and jobs are demanding answers: How did it all go so wrong? Who is to blame? They're still waiting for answers, because to date, only a few small time players have been held to account. No major banking, regulatory or government figures have yet been convicted of any wrongdoing. This four-part documentary series is the first comprehensive portrait of the worst economic crisis in a generation.
