As the economic meltdown spreads across the globe, comedian Phill Jupitus meets the creators of the newspaper comic strip "Alex" - the daily cartoon that satirises the City and the bankers currently being blamed for the crash.

The strip is so successful that it has been turned into a stage play.

This programme was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday 21 October, 2008.
