Background Briefing - 4 July 2010 - The spilling fields: Excellent radio documentary: "As we watch the worst environmental disaster in US history unfold
, it's worth comparing with our own gusher in the Timor Sea last year. The Montara well leaked uncontrollably for over 70 days before it exploded in a fireball incinerating the rig. With the findings of a Commission of Inquiry into the Montara spill still locked down by the Gillard government, will we ever know the true environmental impact? Reporter, Wendy Carlisle."
