London is awash with dirty money, generated by vast criminal networks operating darkly in every corner of the world. From the ruined towns of Kiev to Bond-villain lairs in Knightsbridge and Manhattan, join investigative journalist Oliver Bullough on a journey into Moneyland, the secret country of the lawless, stateless superrich, where kleptocrats rub shoulders with terror financiers, captains of industry and heads of state. The story of wealth and power in the 21st century, he explains why the world is run by thieves, and, importantly, how to take it back. Chaired by Lucy Manning.
