60Minutes Australia--"Undermined"--Natural Gas Development

Reporter: Liz Hayes
Producer: Stephen Rice, Jo Townsend

A big company marches onto your land, sinks a well without your permission and then proceeds to threaten your livelihood.

And it does it all with the consent and approval of the government.

But this is happening in our backyard. And it's our laws and our politicians who are letting it on link for the documentary.
