News network Al Jazeera America will feature a 30 minute program Monday night (1/12) featuring the Bakken region of North Dakota.
The feature will air Monday night at 8 PM. The show Fault Lines will feature the oil boom of North Dakota and more specifically, the high rate of injury and death the industry workers face on a daily basis. The program, 'Death on the Bakken Shale', will explore the darker side of the oil boom - the human cost. The network spent 6 months in North Dakota filming this story.
