Overview

Gold is a financial asset that polarises opinions across the board. Is gold an effective measure of wealth? Is it even a sound investment? Should it be considered a form of currency? Whatever view you take, there is no denying that gold has outlasted every other currency for thousands of years.

Grant Williams is a co-founder of Real Vision, an on-demand TV channel that focuses on finance, economics, and business. Gold: The Story of Man's 6000 Year Obsession shows us why gold became, and has remained, such an enduring source of fascination for mankind. The documentary looks into the increasing complexity of extracting gold from the earth, as well as exploring historical economic functions of gold and the extent to which we deviate from these today.
