In today's financial futures markets, billions of dollars go round the world in seconds in a frenzy of gambling and speculation. Some of the funds dealing with the buying and selling of risk are so complicated and volatile that rocket scientists have been brought in to help operate them.
One of these funds is Steinhardt and Partners. It is known as a hedge fund and it uses money put up by investors to dabble in the futures or "derivatives" markets, bettingoncurrenciesand interest rates. In February 1994 there was panic on the world's markets and prices collapsed. Most of the financial world's high rollers, like Steinhardt and Partners, as well as many pension funds made terrible losses.
In the light of this year's market turmoil, Assignment looks at concerns about gambling in derivatives. It examines the risk it poses to the financial system and asks whether new regulations are needed to control derivatives or should the financial system be totally revamped.

Highlights from recordings made by Video Nation contributors, shown without any editing by the BBC. Men. Contrasting images of masculinity are recorded in these vastly different programmes all made by men. Soldiers play a practical joke on a friend's birthday; an unemployed railway engineer instructs his son about the mysteries of weightlifting; a dragqueen shows off her shoe collection; and. perhaps more traditionally, men at a custom carrally enjoy a wet T-shirt competition.
Viewers are left to make up their own minds about the images of men in this compelling and quirky footage. Producer Mandy Rose ; Executive producer
