When giants rise and fall. This revelatory series reveals how the behemoth that was the East India Company grew into an imperial power, and became the hotbed of corruption and greed that led to its downfall. Over the past 10 years, India and China have been among the fastest growing economies in the world. But at one time England controlled India, helping to create its major cities, and was heavily invested in China, It was England's economy and trade that dwarfed others. And it was all in the hands of the first and greatest multi-national company: the behemoth that was the East India Company. On the ground in India, Dan Snow sets out to discover the motives of those who set up the company at the beginning of the 17th-century. How did it grow into an Imperial power? What influence and impact did the Company have on the globe? A hotbed of corruption and greed, and responsible for the deaths of over one million people, just how did the Company manage to attain such power and what led to its explosive decline?
