Synopsis

`Andersen was until 2000 the largest accountancy firm in the world. Now in this report from 2002 it has been all but extinguished. In the wake of the Enron scandal, its various operations have been sold off to competitors around the world. Andersen is being prosecuted for obstruction of justice for shredding tons of documents to thwart the investigation into accounting scandals at its client Enron. But this is only the latest scandal to hit the firm. Its previous scandals include De Lorean, Waste Management, Baptist Foundation of Arizona, Sunbeam, Global Crossing and others. We investigate why, and explain how the worlds biggest accounting firm could collapse so quickly.' [BBC Learning Business].
