The Warning: In the midst of the 1990s bull market, one lone regulator warned about the dangers of derivatives-and overnight, became the enemy of some of the most powerful people in Washington. Breaking the Bank: Frontline goes inside the saga of Ken Lewis and Bank of America. From the start, the Merrill deal was troubled. Then the government took over. Ten Trillion and Counting: FRONTLINE tracks the politics behind America's mountain of debt. Is this crisis far bigger than our current financial mess? Inside the Meltdown: FRONTLINE investigates how the economy went so bad, so fast, and what Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson didn't see, couldn't stop, and weren't able to fix.
