Four Corners: Rush to Riches
Rush to Riches
ABC  |  June 21, 2010

Reporter Debbie Whitmont goes to the north-west coast of Western Australia to talk to the people at the centre of a bitter dispute over the location of a gas processing plant the mining company says will be worth $50 billion over the next thirty years.

How did it come to this and why do some Indigenous land owners feel betrayed by their own people?
