“Blood and Oil” – BBC Drama Based in the Niger Delta


For those of you who missed the BBC programme “Blood and Oil”, I have archived both parts of the programme below.  It is a hostage drama about kidnapping in the Niger Delta. Naomie Harris stars as Alice Omuka, a London based PR executive who is also the daughter of a wealthy Nigerian businessman.

When Alice is sent to raise the profile of an international oil services company operating in the Niger Delta, she is embroiled into a hostage drama as three oil workers are kidnapped. Watch both parts of “Blood and Oil” here:

The Guardian also has an interesting synopsis and debate about it:

  1. […] and oil -Niger delta Drama Those who missed the programme can watch both parts online at: https://maxsiollun.wordpress.com/2010…e-niger-delta/ __________________ […]

  2. The film was based on false pretense to depose colonial rule which long lies about hostage taking was master minded by people of low mentality.

  3. It seems to me that the movie can only be viewed in the UK. I’m based in USA and I kept getting a message that the movie is not viewable in my region. Is there a link available for viewing in the USA.
