The Coup: A Visual Narration

I don’t know who has made this video.  It looks like a home production, given the sound track.  It has good historical information, with some minor misses, and gives a sketch of the coup particularly in the context of oil production and control.  It’s also quite good in putting together different sources to provide a visual reference for that period and the people involved.  Total viewing time of both parts: 16 minutes
