Executive producer Peter Grimsdale

Greg Palast investigates BP and its close ties to the British government and MI6.
In part 1, Palast examines how the oil industry has devastated the wetlands of Louisiana, with catastrophic consequences for New Orleans, and how plans for future oil exploration in the Arctic will soon pose a further threat to the environment.
In the final part, he turns his attention to how the oil company does its business in “the wild East”. Investigating BP’s operation inside Azerbaijan, Palast uncovers allegations of bribery and espionage.
