Episode 1: This episode reveals how the Bank influences inflation by setting the UK's interest rate. It's a top-secret endeavor until ready to go public, and the bankers' painstaking economic calculations must stand up to the most intense scrutiny. In the vaults, the "money lady" whose signature appears on every UK bank note reveals the so-called titans: bank notes each worth 100 million pounds.
