Have you been unable to tear yourself away from the horrifying footage of the Gulf Coast oil spill? Or have you, like me, been trying to avoid watching this stuff as much as possible to keep from getting too depressed?

Whether you simply want to watch more footage or want to finally catch up on what’s been going on in the area, the National Geographic Channel’s latest program about the ongoing Gulf oil spill will capture your attention. Next week, the channel will air a special program with never-before-seen footage of the fire that started the disaster. Captured by salvage crews, this footage show the burning rig sinking — and early efforts to fight the fire after the explosion.

The one-hour program “Gulf Oil Spill” airs 10 p.m. on May 27 on the National Geographic Channel.
