Historian Bettany Hughes explores the 'Golden Age' of ancient Athens at the dawn of democracy. In the sixth century BC, Athens was run by tyrants, rulers who governed with absolute power, but when one young aristocrat decided to use 'the power of the people' on his side to defeat a rival, the genie was out of the bottle. Democracy was born.

By the summer of 2007 it seemed as if the earth had turned into Planet Finance. As never before, the world was interconnected - but not just by cables, container ships and jet planes but by 24/7 dealing rooms and international investment banks. Globalisation is something we take for granted today. And yet for all the advantages of an interconnected world - perfectly exemplified by Hong Kong's astonishing humming container port, there's a downside to globalisation and that is its vulnerability - its vulnerability to financial shocks,

We may think power resides with Presidents and Prime Ministers, in palaces and parliaments, but it doesn't. It lies with the men who control the world's bond markets. After the rise of banks, the birth of the bond market was the next big revolution in the history of finance. Today the global market for bonds is still bigger than all the world's stock markets put together.

It sounded so simple: give state-owned assets to the people. After all, what better foundation for a property-owning democracy than a campaign of privatisation encompassing housing? An economic theory says that markets cannot function without mortgages, because it is only by borrowing against their assets that entrepreneurs can get their businesses off the ground. But what if mortgages are bundled together and sold off to the highest bidder?

Why do stock markets produce bubbles and busts? Professor Niall Ferguson goes back to the origins of the joint stock company in 17th century Amsterdam and Paris. He tells us that the United Dutch East India Company was the first joint stock company in history. Ferguson draws telling parallels between the recent stock market crash and the 18th century Mississippi Bubble of Scottish renegade murderer and gambler, later financier, John Law, who was the perpetrator of the first stock market 'bubble' in 1720.

Life is a risky business, which is why people take out insurance. But faced with an unexpected disaster, the State has to step in - in other words, the compulsory contributions of taxpayers. In tonight's episode Professor Ferguson travels to post-Katrina New Orleans to ask why the free market cannot provide adequate protection against catastrophe. His quest for an answer takes him to the origins of modern insurance in the early 19th century and to the birth of the welfare state in post-war Japan.
