We tell the inside story of how some of the most prominent Saudi royals were caught up in an unprecedented crackdown on corruption, detaining hundreds of the richest people in the Kingdom. The detentions opened the door on a world of kickbacks and bribes on a monumental scale, which have also embroiled many foreign governments and some of the world’s leading companies. The anti-corruption drive is led by the 33 year old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Some believe his motive is to remove any resistance to his succession to the throne. As Saudi Arabia faces historic change, the programme asks if the latest crackdown could endanger the stability of Saudi Arabia and the House of Saud itself.
