This excellent documentary feature (wait for the naff studio intro to finish) by Mariana van Zeller is broadcast on UK Channel 4 TV on 30 March 2008, or you can watch the whole thing on the Current.Com website. Although it was shot in March/April 2007, it shows graphically the conditions for oilfield communities, which have not improved over the last year. The clip below is the first of four parts in a 24-minute film.
As Mariana notes: "Despite the tens of billions of dollars worth of oil produced here every year, the delta remains desperately poor."
Watch the guy who says "I'm telling you out of anger, because God knows, I'm angry". . .
