2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the discovery of gas in the North Sea, just off the coast of Great Yarmouth. To mark the historic occasion, BBC1 East commissioned Eye Film and Mustard TV to produce a short film for its regional TV programme Inside Out.

Eye Film follow Mustard TV presenter Rob Setchell as he looks back at this historic milestone and at the current state of gas production in the region, the nascent decommissioning sector and the opportunities this provides for local companies.

Eye Film were able to gain exclusive access footage of the work being undertaken on the new Cygnus gas field, courtesy of GDF Suex E&P UK Ltd, one of the largest discoveries of gas in 25 years.  Eye Film endeavored to produce a in-depth, interesting 8 minute film to engage with its local audience.
