Fascinating history of the impact of oil on our world
5 December 2015 | by gmb0553See all my reviews

I find myself loving everything this guy makes, but this is my best to date. It's not a science documentary - you'll need to watch an Open University program if you want details on the chemistry and engineering involved! This program gives you a thorough insight into oils massive role in our exponential rise to power and problems on this little planet. Follow this up with Adam Curtis's 'Bitter Lake' documentary (BBC) to get a more detailed understanding of the post WW2 phase leading to the current Jihadi situation. You'll have all the info you need to cut through confusing mess of politics and 'spin' so far offered to us. Knowledge is power :-)
