The first programme in a three-part series which examines what happened to the Japanese economy over the last two decades of boom and bust. Japanese people recall the giddy boom years of the 1980s when land and share prices soared and banks pressed cheap loans on customers. Tells how, when the crash came, small firms and ordinary families were first in the firing line.
