The Day That Lehman Died

Written By Matthew Solon ~ Produced by the BBC

JOHN SHEA, WRITER MATTHEW SOLON AND WILLIAM PARRY RECORD THE DAY THAT LEHMAN DIED.

September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers filed for the largest bankruptcy in US history, sending the already unstable United States economy into a financial and emotional free fall.  What happened in the days just prior to the fall of Lehman Bros?  What CEO called what CEO?  Who had more lawyers present. How did the ‘big beasts’ of Wall Street make this critical decision? They held in their hands the future, not just of a bank, but the stability of the global financial system.

Requires Flash: Listen

Starring: John Shea, John Rothman, Rob Campbell and Mark La Mara. Directed by John Dryden, Goldhawk Productions. Originally aired in 2009.
