These days politics is all about finding the next opportunity to stand in front of cameras and talk about 'nation building projects'.
Invoke the Snowy Hydro Scheme or inland rail but ignore the NBN and irrigation schemes, and you'll still have a job after the election.
The only problem is with all these 'nation building projects' getting around people have forgotten one of the most recent - the Murray Darling Basin Plan.
And so, like someone opening the window to let the fresh air in, Four Corners cracked the window on what's been happening over the last six years in the MIA.
Most people wouldn't be blamed for thinking "it's about time", but by the end of the program, most people were thinking, "is that it?"
There's more moving parts in the Basin Plan than your average space shuttle, so perhaps we can forgive the producers and reporters for having so much to squeeze into their show.
Each of those parts deserve the scrutiny that ABC's premier current affairs program brings.
And certainly, their questions about how effective the money spent by taxpayers are worth asking.
But there are many more interesting things that are worth asking, if you spend more than a minute in the MIA.
There's definitely some questions that need to be put to the Murray Darling Basin Authority, like why they have Murray irrigators suing them for a tidy $750 million.
You could also be asking tough questions about the authority's and the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder's environmental watering program.
Those questions on environmental watering could probably also be paired with some asking why general security irrigators got just seven per cent last season, Murray irrigators zero and South Australia sits pretty with 100 per cent.
We'd like to know why SA Water entered the temporary trade market last year to buy water to be used in Adelaide and if there really is permanent horticulture farms being developed in that state.
And why was the Barmah Choke's flowrate reduced this year?
The most important question is going to be, what effect will this program have on Griffith?
Will there be a move to secure more environmental water putting even more pressure on the smaller and medium sized irrigators, all the while, letting larger and corporate irrigators grow?
