Dead Ahead 1992
True story of events leading up to and following the 1989 environmental disaster in Alaska.

Shortly after midnight on March 24, 1989, the 987-foot oil tanker Exxon Valdez, piloted by the ship's third mate, ran aground on Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound, Alaska, spilling nearly 11 million gallons of tar-like crude oil and creating America's biggest environmental disaster.

While the oil spread along Alaska's pristine coastline, citizens both there and farther south waited for something to be done. But days went by while corporate and government officials bickered. Meanwhile, the spill, 25 miles from Valdez, polluted more than 1,000 miles of beaches. More than 36,000 migratory birds and thousands of sea mammals and bald eagles were found dead.
