History of Oil - Robert Newman

This is, perhaps, my favorite google video. At 45 minutes it is on the long side, but not nearly as dry as the title might suggest. Robert is a british stand-up comedian with a unique perspective on the role of oil in international affairs. Quite entertaining. I particularly enjoyed his description of Salvador Dali's "magic checkbook."

You can watch the first ten minutes from the You Tube window directly below:

If you want more you can visit the History of Oil google video page and watch the entire 45 minutes as a single clip or download the file to your computer to watch at your leisure:
