Summary A provocative and ground-breaking series, Dirty Business: How Mining Made Australia is the story of mining in this country. It explores how this industry has shaped Australia in unexpected and extraordinary ways and how it has influenced the nation, from the first gold rush to current political debate. Mining has sparked mass migration yet ignited race riots; toppled prime ministers yet laid the foundation for modern democracy; wrenched Aboriginal lands away yet provides perhaps the best hope for the future of many Indigenous communities. With interviews from leading historians, opinion formers and industry experts, this series shows how in 150 years, nothing has influenced government, the economy, and the lives of the majority of Australians, like mining. Mining has always been about politics. The second episode explores the fractious, drama-filled and utterly critical relationship between business and government and the importance of this affiliation to the nation. The program illustrates how mining has been a crucible through which both the Labor movement and big business have tried to influence, infiltrate and control governments. Prime ministers from Billy Hughes, through to Chifley, Menzies, and Whitlam to Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard, are locked in a rocky relationship for better or worse with mining. It has seen the nation prosper and it has seen prime ministers fall. (Commissioned by SBS) (Documentary Series) (Part 2 of 3) PG CC Follow the conversation on Twitter #DirtyBusiness.
