DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
AS Bernie Banton (Anthony Hayes) gets sicker, James Hardie seeks to distance itself further. Literally and figuratively. Matt Peacock, back from London, is still chasing the story, and with so many of Bernie’s workmates now dead, and with victims starting to assemble, liability becomes a key issue, and the NSW Government calls for a judicial inquiry into the company’s compensation set-up. By now Bernie has become the main media agitator, even as he tows his oxygen tank around. Don Hany (pictured) plays James Hardie PR Adam Bourke.
