history of oil - comedy / documentary
found this while killing time on google. thought it was pretty interesting.
'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. Quirky details such as a bicycle powered street lamp on the stage brings home the pertinent question of just how we are going to survive when the world's oil supplies are finally exhausted'
Lots of good points raised ... and I found him very funny ...

It’s like Fritz Fischer meets Charles Beard meets Michael Moore.
