Summary Introduced by Don BurkeIn this week's program Stuart Andrews and his family finally make their decision about the future of the rural property at the heart of a spectacular tug of war. It's Tarwyn Park in the Hunter Region of NSW. It's where Stuart Andrews' father Peter turned ruined and 'environmentally bankrupt' farmland into a 'miracle' of green, fertile pastures. But a Korean open cut coal mining venture has acquired the property, bringing more than one billion dollars in investment and jobs. Hard choices have to be made at Tarwyn Park and there are lasting implications for fractured family relationships. But also at stake, according to some, is nothing less than the future of the Australian landscape..
