    The Caspian Sea contains some of the largest untapped energy reserves on the planet and everybody wants a share. A 1,100-mile pipeline has been built to transport the Caspian’s oil to the markets of Europe and North America.

    In this episode of the BBC’s Curse of Oil series, “The Pipeline” follows the route of the new pipeline through some of the most geographically challenging and politically dangerous places on earth, as it makes it’s way from the Caspian to the Mediterranean Sea.

    En route, the filmmakers encounter disgruntled Turkish villagers, British engineers enduring arctic temperatures and an American-trained force of new military recruits in the Republic of Georgia.
