The Royal Bank of Scotland was once a famous Scottish institution; a bank with a reputation for prudence.

But in October 2008, less than a decade after Fred Goodwin took over as chief executive, it came within hours of collapsing.

RBS later posted the biggest loss in UK corporate history - 24 billion pounds - which damaged the bank's reputation for financial prudence and Scotland's image as a global financial center.

Using previously unbroadcast footage of the bank's top executives and interviews with bank insiders, this documentary tells the compelling story of a national catastrophe.
