On 30th July 1997 at Thredbo Australia 18 people where buried alive by a landslide. One of those men, Stuart Diver, managed to stay alive. With the rescuers working tireless to find survivors Diver was trying to let them know that he was alive, buried under the rubble. After a massive 65 hours in the freezing temperatures, wearing only his under wear, Stuart Diver was the only person to be pulled from the rubble. Written by

Thredbo disaster made heroes of rescuers: well told
There wasn't anything new that could be done with a disaster story. It's a dramatisation of an actual event after all. But it was extraordinary to "see" the story behind what we all read in the newspapers and heard in TV broadcasts.
The direction was good, the story told well and acted very well. It was good to see Craig McLachlan in something again, and Nadine Garner.
Well worth a look.
