Truth, Lies, Oil and Scotland
BBC 1 Scotland Wed 4 Jun, 10:45 pm - 11:45 pm 60mins
On 3rd of November 1975 the first barrel of oil was pumped from the North Sea onto Scotland's shores. It was an event that would change the course of history and affect the future of Scotland and the UK ever since.
This landmark film shows how the modern history of Scotland is intrinsically linked to the 'black gold' being pumped out of the North Sea. BBC Scotland News business reporter Hayley Millar puts forward the theory that you cannot understand the last 40 years of Scotland's past, its present and its future without understanding oil. And vital to understanding oil is separating the facts from the lies that surround possibly the most important natural resource in the world.
Drawing on the personal testimony of the key players in the story of North Sea Oil in the last four decades, the film celebrates some of Scotland's great unsung achievements surrounding oil and examine some of the mistakes that have been made along the way.
