Summary
Program 5. Post-World War II America awakens to the strategic importance of oil, and witnesses a key moment in history when oil production shifts from the U.S. to the Middle East. An extraordinary cast of characters, including Arabian kings, U.S. presidents, British adventurers, Iranian politicians, and American explorers, paint a global portrait of how oil shaped the world economy and politics. Program 6. It's the heyday of cheap oil, the dawn of the Hydrocarbon Society ... and the introduction of prosperous new automobile culture for Americans. Follow the flamboyant characters, plots, and counterplots, as the producing countries and the independent oil companies challenge the "Seven Sisters"- and open a new era in world oil
