Behind the scenes at the Bank of England
This timely two-part series goes inside the Bank of England as Britain faces severe economic uncertainty. On 23rd June 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU – and the economy was sent into freefall. After the shock referendum result, the Bank declared itself ready to provide a staggering £250bn of additional funds to support markets through a ‘period of uncertainty’. What will happen in reality? Will the process be ‘measured and orderly’, or will desperate times call for desperate measures? This is the story of an economy on the edge – told through the eyes of the Bank of England and its staff, as they work tirelessly to keep the country’s finances in check, over one unprecedented year.
