Bob Landry Springhill Mining Disaster - TV Documentary (10) Springhill Mining Disaster - TV Documentary 23 Oct 98

With reference to a recent thread discussing songs commemorating mining disasters in Springhill, Nova Scotia, please note:

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation will be showing a one-hour documentary tonight and tomorrow about the 1958 Springhill mining disaster. For those of you with access to Canadian cable TV or satellite dishes, look for the program "The Passionate Eye" to be broadcast tonight, October 23rd, at 8:pm on CBC Newsworld (CBC's equivalent of CNN) . The regular CBC network will re-broadcast the documentary tomorrow afternoon at 3:pm. All times shown are Eastern Daylight Time ... the same time zone as the Mudcat.

I saw a short version of it 2 days ago on another CBC news program. It brought back vivid memories of watching the rescue efforts on TV when I was a lad in Cape Breton.
