The Spider's Web: Britain's Second Empire, is a documentary about how Britain transformed from a colonial power to a financial dominance controlling over half of the world's off-shore wealth. The City of London is not what it seems; a jurisdiction outside much of British law, it operates a world-wide web of 'secrecy jurisdictions'. These in turn, siphon billions from nations across the globe, especially from the global south. How did The City become the world's largest financial player? And what impact does this have on all of us? With contributions from leading experts, elected officials, academics, and former insiders, the use of stylized b-roll and archive footage, the Spider's Web reveals how corruption and secrecy have become the norm prevailing over regulation and transparency. And the UK is the beating heart.
