Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting and "Rare" "Lowish" production value -- say, relative to a mainstream cable TV documentary offering -- more than redeemed by a solid coverage of a decidedly under-covered topic. I appreciated a non-ideological presentation of niche topics. The history of oil exploration in Trinidad and Tobago is such a topic. In less than one hour, the viewer will get a a basic introduction to the colonial and post colonial history of T&T, a glimpse at its demographics, an understanding of the challenges involved in the prospecting and exploitation of oil and gas resources, and an appreciation of the progress that has made the island a player in the regional energy market.
