From Sunday Morning, 11:07 am on 7 April 2013

Written by Dave Armstrong and produced by Radio New Zealand's Drama department. Today, it's a game of bluff and double bluff in Bluff. With the Tiwai Point aluminium smelter facing an uncertain future, delicate negotiations are taking place between the government and Rio Tinto.
