Pike River docu-drama

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 20 November 2016

The Pike River mining disaster is still very raw with families fighting to retrieve the bodies of the 29 men killed in the explosion. Yesterday was the 6th anniversary. This very public tragedy has remained in the news ever since, including the past week as families continue to fight moves to seal off the mine.  Docu-drama Pike River goes to air on Prime tomorrow.  Lynn Freeman spoke to the producer Philly de Lacey, and actor Adam Gardiner.
