Watch the full-length episode at In this clip from "The Warning," airing Tues, Oct. 20, FRONTLINE examines the long road that led Brooksley Born to her post as the chairperson of the federal regulatory agency Commodities Futures Trading Commission—a position that pit her directly against the president's pro-business, anti-regulation economic powerbrokers, including Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan.

In the devastating aftermath of the economic meltdown, FRONTLINE sifts the ashes for clues about why it happened and examines critical moments when it might have gone much differently. Looking back into the 1990s, veteran FRONTLINE producer/director Michael Kirk ("Inside the Meltdown," "Breaking the Bank") discovers early warnings of the crash, reveals an intense battle among high-ranking members of the Clinton administration and uncovers a concerted effort not to regulate the emerging, highly complex and lucrative derivatives markets that would become the ticking time bomb within the American economy.
