10 years on from the Pike River disaster

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:16 pm on 19 November 2020

Documentary maker Tony Sutorius became involved with the families of the Pike River disaster victims while he was filming the last year of Helen Kelly's life.

The connections he's made with them have led to him being the only non-family member on the Pike River Family Reference group with liaises with government agencies.

He talks to Jesse about the ongoing struggle to get into the mine and the families' determination to improve workplace health and safety in New Zealand.
