I didn't see this programme, but the archive here -

Oil discovery rates have been falling since the 60's, and demand will
soon outstrip supply.  It's not about owning the oil fields as much as
is is about ensuring a continued supply of the stuff.

    Campbell thinks the decline will start by 2010. "It starts with a
    price shock due to control of the market by a few countries, and
    it is followed by the onset of physical shortage, which just gets
    worse and worse and worse," he says.
