There’s a new documentary series airing currently on Planet Green. The series, Boomtown, is set in Parshall, North Dakota, and tells the story of the small town’s dilemma in the face of determined oil industry interest in setting up shop. The series airs on Saturday nights on Planet Green, the first episode airing this past week. I haven’t seen a full episode, yet, but the Planet Green website has posted several brief “webisodes,” brief clips from the episode that aired most recently. The most interesting of these may be “The Price of Drilling: No Rights,” which focuses on one of the surface landowners, a rancher named Donny who finds the drilling disruptive of his use of his own land, especially in terms of danger to his cattle (we see the cows chewing blithely on a live electrical cord at one point).
