Anybody see the documentary/interview programme about this last week?

It interviewed some of the survivors, had computer-generated recreation of how it all happened.

A superb programme - brought tears to my eyes.


PS This week's programme is about the King's Cross fire.

Apparently the problem was that caused by the Coal Board tipping onto a stream. This was soaked up by the tipped "slag" and therefore created the slide.

I remember it, too. The entry covers it well, not too much, not too little.
