“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:
