Power Trip: Fracking in the UK (63mins) takes you onto the frontlines of UK resistance in the battle to stop the controversial energy extraction process known as Fracking.
We show what happens beyond the few seconds glimpsed on the mainstream TV news. We follow campaign groups Lancashire Nanas and Reclaim the Power as they shut down the Fracking sites near Blackpool and Balcombe, Sussex by occupying trucks and blocking gates.
We explore how social media is being used by both Fracking companies and activists. We hear from energy experts, journalists and key politicians
amongst the voices of local residents and councillors.
