Lehman Brothers’ collapse to be subject of BBC filmAugust 19th, 2009 - 11:43 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 19 (DPA) The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is turning the collapse of US investment bank Lehman Brothers nearly a year ago into a TV fiction film, it was announced Wednesday.
“The Last Days Of Lehman Brothers” is inspired by real-life events over a weekend in mid-September, 2008, which resulted in Lehman’s collapse and accelerated the international banking crisis.
Executive producer Ruth Caleb said the events would be “brought to life” by a high-profile cast including US actor James Cromwell. The script was written by playwright and screenwriter Craig Warner.
The hour-long drama, to go on air this autumn, will follow the desperate efforts of former Lehman chief executive Dick Fuld to save the bank.
