Episode 1: The Battle Begins. Dr Iain Stewart traces the history of climate change from its very beginning and examines just how the scientific community managed to get it so very wrong back in the Seventies. Along the way he uncovers some of the great unsung heroes of climate change science, and introduces us to a secret organization of American government scientists, known as Jason, who wrote the first official report on global warming as far back as 1979.
Episode 2: Dr Iain Stewart investigates the counter attack that was launched by the global warming skeptics in the 1990s. At the start of the 1990s it seemed the world was united. At the Rio Earth summit the world signed up to a program of action to start tackling climate change. Even George Bush was there. But the consensus didn’t last. Iain interviews some of the key global warming skeptics, and discovers how their positions have changed over time.

Episode 3: New Challenges: Having explained the science behind global warming, and addressed the arguments of the climate change sceptics earlier in the series, in this third and final part Dr Iain Stewart looks at the biggest challenge now facing climate scientists. Just how can they predict exactly what changes global warming will bring? Its a journey that takes him from early attempts to model the climate system with dishpans, to supercomputers, and to the front line of climate research today: Greenland.

Goldman Sachs has come under intense scrutiny following a government investigation into its practices. The firm is a powerhouse whose 34,000 employees are known as the best and the brightest. It’s unique corporate culture and its long history of success have always been the envy of its competitors … but now Goldman Sachs is fighting to maintain its reputation. The firm has been accused by some critics of misleading investors, and taken to task for accepting a government bailout when, less than a year later, it was able to reap massive profits. Some ask if its connections to the many Goldman alumni who went on to influential government positions gave it an unfair advantage in surviving the global financial crisis.

In this CNBC original documentary, correspondent David Faber reveals how Goldman Sachs benefited from some of its most controversial deals before, during and after the economic collapse. He describes how Goldman, throughout its history, has fought back from adversity with innovation and fierce competitiveness. Faber also examines the future of Goldman Sachs, asking whether the bank can maintain its dominant position atop the world of finance.
