Tonight, quite top­i­cally, the fo­cus shifts from gold to government as Dirty Busi­ness delves into the murky world of min­ing and pol­i­tics.

From Aus­tralia’s first government to the na­tion's cur­rent one, the min­ing in­dus­try has ex­erted enor­mous in­flu­ence on ev­ery facet of pol­i­tics.

Ju­lia Gil­lard’s rocky re­la­tion­ship with Aus­tralian min­ing is typ­i­cal of the strug­gles faced by prime min­is­ters through the years. This episode will go some of the way to ex­plain­ing the op­pos­ing forces at work.
