Twenty years ago, farmers living either side of Goombi Fairymeadow Road, west of Chinchilla, lived on land prosperous enough to fatten their herds of sheep and cattle. Today, the same dry, hot landscapes are wrought with coal seam gas wells. This mini-documentary tracks changes in the lives of two Goombi Fairymeadow farmers as they cope with the advent of coal seam gas mining. Ian is sick of the legal and financial hubbub in negotiations with gas mining conglomerates, and Gail worries for the future of her and her neighbours.
