Information
------------------------------

Crude - the incredible journey of oil, from its birth deep within our dinosaur-
inhabited past, to its ascendancy as the indispensable ingredient of modern
life.

Oil is one of the most sought after resources in the world and sweeps into
almost every part of our modern lives, yet most people have little idea of the
incredible 160 million year journey it has made to reach our gas tanks and
plastic bags. What is its history? Where does it come from? When will it run
out?

Shooting on locations around the world and using CGI animations to visualize
both science and history, Crude helps make sense of the oil-driven world we
live in. It connects the dots between geology and economy; between the past,
present and future. Crude takes a step back from the day-to-day news to offer
a fresh perspective on the amazing fluid that powers our lives.
