History of Oil DVD


History of Oil dvd

The much anticipated History of Oil DVD. 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, this show 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.

Also included on the dvd is Robert's full From Caliban to Taliban stand-up show.

Entirely Accurate Encyclopedia of Evolution

From Caliban to the Taliban DVD

In this witty, fact-packed A-Z, Robert takes the reader on a whirlwind tour from caring, sharing vampire bats to intelligent slime-mould; from pacifist baboons to Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with his postman; from the invisibility cloak of the Hawaiian bobtail squid to Francis 'DNA' Crick's belief that life on earth began with alien spaceships.

The Encyclopaedia is in bookshops now, and also available direct from Freight Books. Hardback, 11.99. ISBN 978-1-908885-53-1

"It's a terrific book, and a nice thing, a nice size - it's an artefact." BBC Radio 6 Music Radcliffe and Maconie

"A sustained, witty swipe at Dawkins's world-view... You see that chink of light in the dark, overcast sky, that's you that is." Daily Telegraph
