On May 27 the National Geographic Channel (NGC) will air never-before-seen footage of the Gulf oil spill aftermath. The documentary titled “Gulf Oil Spill” will follow the first 36 hours after the catastrophic explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

“Gulf Oil Spill” footage includes the burning rig sinking, early firefighter action, U.S. Coast Guard rescue efforts, and emotional eye witness accounts.

“I could see the glow of the burning rig at 90 miles away,” says USCG Lieutenant Lim. “I knew this was big … like seeing hell on earth.”

“I kept thinking — we’re all dead … I didn’t know if I was the only person still on the rig or what,” explains 23-year-old survivor Chris Choy. “It’s something I’ll never forget, images just burned into my head … We got together in a big group and we figured we were missing 11 guys … We just kept praying that someone would find them.”

The Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion killed 11 of 126 men on board and sent oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico toward the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida coastlines.

“Gulf Oil Spill” will air on Thursday, May 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel.
