  Break the Bank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Break the Bank is a title that has been used for three entirely separate American game shows throughout television history.
ABC did not cancel Break the Bank due to low ratings; indeed, evidence shows the series was just starting to catch on when the plug was somewhat abruptly pulled on it, a victim of ABC's expanding soap opera block.
Break the Bank was revived in name once again in 1985, and once again the new show was completely unconnected to the ones that came before.

 Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : Right Bank   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Like the Left Bank, and due to its association with places such as Place Vendôme, the Right Bank can now be used to refer to a level of elegance and sophistication now found in its more bohemian sister to the south.
The left bank of river Nervión (Spanish, "Margen Izquierda"; Basque, "Ezkerraldea") with the towns of Barakaldo, Sestao, Santurtzi and Portugalete and extending to the iron mines (Zona Minera or Mehatzaldea) was the place of industrial workers living in crowded desarrollismo apartments.
The right bank was the place of the industry owners, the bourgeois living in the chalets of Neguri, that allied with the Spanish right wing.

 Break the bank - Financial Director   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
None of the major banks had to worry about a hostile takeover, so the mythology ran, for the Bank of England was there to ensure their invulnerability.
It was a blow from which the bank never recovered, and one that triggered a bid from HSBC which, at that time, was eager to domicile itself in the UK and thus enjoy the regulatory supervision of the Bank of England ahead of the 1997 handover of Hong Kong to China.
The bank came under siege by enraged shareholders who interpreted the bid as a pointless and value-destroying operation, and that was the signal that triggered the opportunistic raid by the still independent Bank of Scotland, followed by a rival offer from Royal Bank of Scotland, which eventually won the day.
