The City Uncovered with Evan Davis is a 2009 British documentary series.

Background[edit]

The City Uncovered deals with the history of finance, and the recent events of the financial crisis of 2007–2010.[1] The three-part BBC series, presented by journalist Evan Davis, was a part of the "City Season" programming on the BBC. It aired on BBC 2 in the UK at 9 pm on Wednesday evenings between 14 and 28 January 2009.[2] The episodes were shown again on BBC One days later. The title is a reference to the common name of the financial areas of London, known as The City, which is similar to places such as Wall Street in New York City.
