The Hunter River is the lifeblood of the Hunter Valley. But since early settlement it hasn't been treated like a life blood; it has been exploited, turned into a dumping ground and over-run by weeds. In 2001, ABC Newcastle's Phil Ashley-Brown interviewed people along the 470km Hunter River between Barrington Tops and Newcastle Harbour.

In 2011 Phil went back to the river to see how much change there has been over the last 10 years.
