A Stage Show – Humorous and Informative

Robert Newman gets to grips with the wars and politics of the last hundred years – but rather than adhering to the history we were fed at school, he places oil centre stage as the cause of all commotion.

This innovative history programme is based around Robert Newman’s stand-up act and supported by resourceful archive sequences and stills with satirical impersonations of historical figures from Mayan priests to Archduke Ferdinand.

Quirky details such as a bicycle-powered street lamp on the stage bring home the pertinent question of just how we are going to survive when the world’s oil supplies are finally exhausted.
