Crude - The Incredible Journey of Oil

This extraordinary documentary travels through time, from the birth of oil deep in the dinosaur-inhabited past, to its ascendancy as the indispensable ingredient of modern life. From the food on our tables to the fuel in our cars, crude oil seeps invisibly into almost every part of our modern lives. 'Crude' helps us make sense of the oil-driven world we live in. It joins the dots between geology and economy; between the past, the present and the future. The Oil Age we now take for granted began less than a century and a half ago, and could be over in our lifetimes.
