Bad Ground is the real story of miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb and their deliverance from entombment in the depths of the Beaconsfield hard-rock mine.
But the seismic event that trapped them affected the close-knit community just as profoundly. Family, friends, fellow miners and rescuers: this is also the story of those who worked desperately against the clock and against all odds to reach the men below. Of those who held vigil, of those who grieved, and of those who never stopped believing.
Tony Wright was there covering the story as it unfolded, and experienced first-hand the making of an Australian legend.
