Inside the Meltdown

Frontline investigates the causes of the worst economic crisis in 70 years, and the government's response. Detailing the inside stories of the Bear Stearns deal, the Lehman Brothers collapse, the propping up of insurance giant AIG, and the $700 billion bailout, this program examines what former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson (shown) and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke didn't see, couldn't stop, and haven’t been able to fix.

ABOUT FRONTLINE

From foreign affairs to family matters, social issues to criminal justice, politics to the press, WGBH's Frontline goes beyond the superficial sound bite of the television newsmagazine to offer in-depth, intelligent, and thought-provoking stories and investigative reports. At the heart of Frontline's commitment to its viewers is credible, thoughtful reporting combined with powerful narrative — a good story well told.
