Robert Newman History of Oil
This is wonderful history via comedy. A Brit named Rob Newman elucidates the history of oil. Enjoy this historical comedy/commentary.
Robert Newman gets to grips with the wars and politics of the last hundred years – but rather than adhering to the history we were fed at school, the places oil centre stage as the cause of all commotion. This innovative history programme is based around Robert Newman’s stand-up act and supported by resourceful archive sequences and stills with satirical impersonations of historical figures from Mayan priests to Archduke Ferdinand.
