BEACONSFIELD ( M)
This is exactly why miners earn their big bucks. Drilling out a living a kilometre below the surface would have knobs on it at the best of times but the associated dangers are terrifying. Our two Tassie champs Todd Russell and Brant Webb came face to face with said dangers in 2006, surviving a rock collapse and two weeks underground before being pulled to safety in a monumental rescue effort at the Beaconsfield gold mine. We all know the cracking story and while this is a decent quality, albeit straightforward telemovie, a more cinematic telling would have been fitting.
