Filmed for well over a year, this quirky observational documentary series followed Dave Fishwick as he did the obvious but unthinkable thing when faced with collapsing banking system and a town that could not get loans from the UK's High Street banks - he started his own.

 

From that moment, it became a David versus Goliath story as the banking regulators tried to stop Dave creating his 'better bank' just as the big banks were seen to be increasingly inept and corrupt.

Convinced that he can do a better job than the high street banks, "Dave Fishwick sings along to Phil Collins, eats a lot of bananas and gets on with starting a mini revolution in banking…"
