Deepwater Horizon: The First 36 Hours

  • Posted by on May 25, 2010 in Business
  • From Neatorama:

    On April 20, 2010, a mayday call from the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico reporting an explosion aboard signaled the beginning of one of the largest man-made environmental disasters in the United States. Today, the environmental, economic, and political repercussions of the oil spill are just being felt – but what happened the day the rig went ablaze, before the magnitude of the catastrophe as we know it today was clear?

    National Geographic Channel obtained exclusive never-before-seen footage from the U.S. Coast Guard, NGC production crew and salvage company who responded in the chaotic first 36 hours following the explosion.

    The NGC documentary "Gulf Oil Spill" airs Thursday May 27, 10 PM ET/PT.
