On Anzac Day 2006, the Beaconsfield Mine in Tasmania collapsed, trapping two miners – Todd Russell (Lachy Hulme) and Brant Webb (Shane Jacobson), in an area the size of a dog kennel, 1000 meters underground. They knew one thing, they were in it together…
Based on the book Bad Ground by Tony Wright, Todd Russell and Brant Webb; and watched by more than 1.6 million Australians during its TV broadcast, Beaconsfield recounts how these two men with nothing in common kept their heads together and their hope alive for 15 days and nights. Directed by Glendyn Ivin (Last Ride) and also starring Anthony Hayes, Cameron Daddo, Michala Banas, Sacha Horler and Angus Sampson, this is Australian TV at its finest, and it could be yours!
