BBC’s factual and drama teams collaborate for Lehman Brothers crash season

BBC's drama and factual departments worked together in a unique collaboration on Crash Season, programming to mark the anniversary of the collapse of the Lehman Brothers bank. The Love Of Money will kick off the season, a three-part series that includes eyewitness contributions from Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling, Tim Geithner, Alan Greenspan, and the CEOs of Merrill Lynch and Barclays, among others. That will be followed by the one-off drama The Last Days Of Lehman Brothers, which benefited from close partnership with the factual team.
