Gold: The Story of Man's 6000 Year Obsession
Storyline: Grant Williams presents the definitive analysis of gold, in a brand new two-part Real Vision documentary featuring an incredible collection of experts and market analysts.Grant travels around the world to try and understand why gold became money and how it has outlasted every alternative currency for thousands of years.
In Episode One, Grant charts the history of the yellow metal, and shows us why gold has retained its unique place at the center of the global financial system for six thousand years. In Episode Two Grant examines how gold is bought and sold around the world, explains the difference between ‘the gold price’ and ‘the price of gold,’ and explores some of the legends that surround the yellow metal.
Grant also weighs up the possibility of the world returning to a gold standard and addresses the all-important accusations of manipulation that surround the subject of man’s 6000-year obsession.
In episode 2 Grant looks at the gold markets and explains why ‘the gold price’ is different to ‘the price of gold’. We will look at how gold trades in traditional financial centres such as London and New York and travel East to Dubai, to see how gold is bought and sold in the real world – away from computer screens. Grant will also examine some of the many conspiracy theories surrounding gold and ask the question; is the gold price manipulated and, if so, by who and why.
Finally, we will look to the future and ask the all-important question; will gold’s place at the centre of the financial universe continue and, if so, how will it change as governments, faced with mountainous debt piles, slowly tighten the noose of financial repression around their citizen’s necks. How does gold provide a possible escape route in times of financial stress?
