The Mayfair Set

fascinating series of documentaries made the late 1990s about the influence of a loose network of 'entrepreneurs' who coalesced around the Clermont Club in the 1960s onwards...interestingly, no mention of spreadbetting king Stuart Wheeler, who as another member of this group, made the beginnings of his fortune with IG Index in the mid-1970s...charts the rise of Thatcherite market-worship which has landed us in our current predicament...certainly worth a watch
