Mine Quest

Imagine a world frozen in time:  the debris of people's lives laying scattered around the floors; the machinery that ran the world looking vaguely like a quick polish might put it back in commission; even the graffiti that once illustrated the worker's lives still clearly legible on the walls.  It may sound a bit like a scene from the ancient town of Pompeii, but it's not.  It's a snapshot of an underwater mine that lays deep beneath the surface of Bell Island in Newfoundland, Canada.  With a little luck, you may be able to explore this world in a few months.  Meanwhile you can watch these two pieces which appeared on Daily Planet.  Written and Directed by Robert Osborne.  Camera work by Cecil Johnson and Jill Heinerth.  Hosted by Dan Risken.
