Radio 4 Profile: Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein

Edward Stourton profiles Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, the highly successful but controversial global investment bank at the centre of fraud allegations.

At first glance his career looks like a classic American success story, rising from a tough upbringing to head one of the world's most important financial firms. But the economic crisis and allegations of fraud have challenged the mythical reputation once enjoyed by the bank - and Blankfein himself.

BBC Radio 4's Profile of Lloyd Blankfein was originally broadcast on Saturday, 24 April 2010 at 1900 BST.
