Excellent
22 April 2012 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

I lived the Beaconsfield mine collapse in 2006 through the media, along with the rest of Australia and probably the world. Hanging on every word and video image I could, in the hope they would be rescued alive. Beaconsfield (2012)brought home the fear and frustration the men felt as they were trapped alive. Dealing with situations I hadn't even considered back in 2006 while watching from afar. The producers and writers have retold the unknown story, from the miners perspective, as we all know the perspective the general public had through constant media attention. The producers and writers also dealt with the families grief and anguish in a very sensitive manner. Great viewing, well worth watching!
