For two centuries, American whale oil lit the world -- illuminating and powering the start of the industrial revolution, and laying the groundwork for a truly global economy. This two-hour film will tell the riveting and extraordinary story of the American whaling industry, from its origins off the coast of New England and Cape Cod, through the great golden age of deep-ocean whaling, to the industry's spectacular demise.
