The first time we posted the legendary 1987 PBS documentary about Paul Tudor Jones, it only lasted a few hours before it was taken down.
Surprisingly, the video has remained available for three weeks now. We suggest you watch this right away. It’ll probably be taken down soon enough.

Jones famously objected to the documentary after its original airing, demanding that PBS stop airing it. Of course, as Gawker points out, this only made everyone want to see what the fuss was about.
Here’s the discription of the film written on the back of the box that the VHS tape came packaged in:
Is financial trading an art, science, profession or out-and-out gamble? If you’re interested in money and you want to know what it’s really like on Wall Street, this is the video you, your family, your colleagues and your friends should own. Filmed before Wall Street‘s October 1987 crash, TRADER is a riviting one hour documentary of a fascinating man, Paul Tudor Jones II. It delivers a rarely seen view of futures trading and explains the workings of this frantic, highly charged marketplace. It gives viewers an inside look at his estate in Virginia, skiing in Gstaad, his New York apartment. It also examines Jones’ prediction that America is nearing the end of a 200-year bull market. If he’s right – and he almost always is – this country and the world are about to experience economic changes of unprecedented proportions.
