 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtvaNIQN0DY

For decades, presidents, drug smugglers and criminals have used a Panamanian law firm to hide their accounts and valuables. This is revealed in documents reviewed by media partners around the world, including NDR and WDR. A total of 370 journalists from 78 countries evaluated around 11.5 million documents in the course of their reporting on the "PanamaPapers." An anonymous source provided the data to Germany's Süddeutsche Zeitung. The paper then shared it with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and partners across the globe, including NDR and WDR.

The Spider's Web: Britain's Second Empire (Global Finance Documentary)

This is a film about how Britain transformed from a colonial power to a modern financial power; and how this transformation has shaped the world we live in.

At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of secrecy jurisdictions that captured wealth from across the globe and hid it in a web of offshore islands. By 1997 nearly 90 percent of all international loans were made through the Cayman Islands / offshore UK secrecy jurisdiction finance market. Today, up to half of global offshore wealth is hidden in British jurisdictions and Britain and its dependencies are the largest global players in the world of international finance.
