  • J Barry Fraser

    Am I to understand that the Napoleonic lost wars and in the USA civil war, the south lost because of “Bondholders”?

  • Lisa Jeffery

    How can I obtain a copy of this program?

  • Brian Christmann`

    I would like to get a video of it. Tt’s a fascinating program.

  • michael miller

    I would like to know what music or who played guitar, the sinister sounding ?

  • Brennan S

    The music is composed by Steven Severin.

  • Sam Jeon

    I like this program alot in that it shows long history of economies very easily. At the last moment, I got somehow frightened to guess that North Korea could be the handle to have the conflict between U.S. and China…

  • mike kilner

    well acted and very interesting screener, will look forward to seeing the whole thing. my only gripe was the editing.

  • Abe Martin

    Please for the sake of all the it is good — what is that flute concerto that is played in “Bonds of War” while Nial is discussing the Duke of Bukingham. Please I am being tortured,what is it called?

    Thank You,
    Abe
