Summary Geologist Iain Stewart investigates a new and controversial energy rush for the natural shale gas found deep underground. This new supply has slashed the price of electricity, kick started a renaissance in manufacturing and driven down carbon emissions. Getting it out of the ground involves hydraulic fracturing - or fracking. Iain travels to America to find out what it is, why it is a potential game changer and what we can learn from the US experience. He meets some of the people who have become rich from fracking as well as the communities worried about the risks
