DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Saturday - DEVIL’S DUST, ABC1, 8.30pm

I’M go­ing to as­sume if you’re go­ing to watch this, you re­mem­ber Bernie Ban­ton, whose cam­paign­ing and then death in 2007 in­tro­duced mesothe­lioma to many peo­ple. An­thony Hayes is great as Ban­ton, a (seem­ingly) healthy man in his 30s when we first meet him, work­ing on a dusty James Hardie fac­tory floor. And when I say dusty, I mean as­bestos dust. It’s con­sid­ered safe, though, be­cause it’s white, not blue as­bestos, which has been banned. Ques­tions are start­ing to be asked, though, by ABC jour­nal­ist Matt Peacock, and by Eve Fran­cis a health com­mis­sion in­spec­tor.
