The "Seven Sisters" was Big Oil--the cartel of corporations that came to own almost all the oil in the Middle East. They gained this treasure by hook and by crook, in violation of the law, with help from corrupt monarchs abroad and the U.S. government, armed forces, and CIA.

We adapt to radio a fine documentary. This week, Part 1 takes us from the founding of the cartel in 1928 (by Standard Oil, Shell, and BP) to the creation of OPEC in 1960.
