Alistair Darling was Chancellor of The Exchequer during one of the most dramatic periods of global financial history – June 2007 to May 2010. He oversaw the rescue of the British banking system and coped with the financial aftermath of that crisis.

Lord Darling made some introductory comments and then was interviewed by Ray Perman author of Hubris: How HBOS Wrecked The Best Bank In Britain.
