At the suggestion of a friend I listened to a recent edition of the BBC Radio 4 series “Costing the Earth”. The programme was entitled “Big Oil, Big Trouble”. After listening to it, I was minded to write a strong letter of complaint and objection to the BBC. However, I then reflected that this would only make my objections known to a few people at the BBC, who would, most likely, immediately dismiss them as coming from a biased source, particularly as, although today I am retired and have no involvement with the industry, I did spend almost all of my working life in it. So I thought it would be better to “go public” with my criticisms and corrections and let people draw their own conclusions – and who better to approach for help on that but the editor of the UK’s best oil and gas news channel, namely Energy Voice. Hence this piece.
