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, the series shows how in 150 years, nothing has influenced government, the economy, and the lives of the majority of Australians, like mining. The final episode looks at the dramatic story of the conflict between mining and land rights, and mining and environmentalism. Ironically, while it also tells how mining both destroyed and dispossessed many; it may be the best hope for the future of the First Australians.
