WVIA Movie About the History of the Wyoming Valley & Coal Mining?

PostBy: rabbit On: Tue. Oct. 07, 2008 2:39 pm

For the NEPA natives: trying to locate a documentary that aired on WVIA (PBS) some years ago - may have been about coal mining history, the history of the Wyoming Valley, or mine disasters.

My uncle swears he saw it late one night and there was footage of the Buttonwood Colliery explosion in 1951. My grandfather was a miner there and was helping to rescue the men out of the ventilation shaft. Supposedly he appears in the footage and I'd love to be able to find it. If anyone has any info regarding this piece please post up! Thanks.
