Dan Calder Springhill Mining Disaster - TV Documentary (10) RE: Springhill Mining Disaster - TV Documentary 23 Oct 98

As an added bit of historical trivia, I'd like to point out that the 1958 Springhill disaster also stands out because it was the first news event covered live with the CBC beaming images across Canada and to the United States. It was a hell of a way to make the record books.

We in Springhill still feel quite a kinship with the Cape Bretoners, Bob. Many men from your area were quick to arrive in town and risk their own lives by going underground to locate victims and survivors. Sometimes saying "Thank You" just doesn't seem adequate. My wife lost her father in the 'Bump' forty years ago today.
