From TV?New Zealand, this is a fascinating look at the drilling of the second Manapouri tunnel in connection with the huge hydro-electric power station deep in the mountains of New Zealand’s South Island. Despite the most modern equipment, the geology and earthquake fault bands meant that this was a most difficult and dangerous job. Informative and very well made, albeit the commentary is sometimes a bit over the top!
