Thanks for such a touching story, for such fine filmmaking, and for making it available as a vodcast for those of us out-of-state.

The Crandall Canyon Mine disaster had an ominous and profound effect on people accross the country. I have a friend in my home state of Minnesota who followed it and a relative in Wisconsin. I still frequently try to locate and piece together more information about it, and I just found this. It is so compelling and has had an impact on probably tens of thousands of people. I wonder if the survivors realize that a nation watched with hope with them until hope slipped away.
