Stewart shows for the first time how four of the biggest names on Wall Street - Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine - created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions.

    With its student mix of Irish-Catholic, Vietnamese, Cambodian, African-American and African-Caribbean heritages, South Boston High School offered a unique opportunity for multi-ethnic understanding. That was not always the case. South Boston High was once the scene of such violent racial confrontations that the National Guard had to patrol its halls. Producer Adina Back takes us to South Boston High, now closed, to let us hear from students as they address their differences.
