In this episode, we discuss the documentary film 'When the River Runs Dry' made by a father son team from Maldon.

Only just released and already honoured with multiple awards, this film explores the 2019 mass fish kill event in the Darling River.  In the first half of the episode we get a review of the film from Andrew Skeoch and Nathan Johnson, both locals deeply interested in nature.  Andrew is a nature sound collector and Nathan is a conservationist.  Then in the second half of the episode we discuss the film and the issues it raises with the filmmakers Peter Yates and Rory McLeod.
