BEA­CONS­FIELD ( M)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

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.
