One of Our Mines is Missing
On July 5, 1955, a mine laid deep beneath the German trench lines during the First World War detonates in a thunderstorm, leaving a crater 250 feet in diameter and 60 feet deep. It is just one of potentially hundreds of underground mines abandoned at the end of the war. Many of them are becoming more unstable; it may be only a matter of time before another explosion occurs.This documentary weaves past and present as it unfolds the story of the search for a mine buried deep in the fighting tunnels beneath the Canadian Memorial at Vimy Ridge. Using rare archival film and photographs, sophisticated 3D animation and superb aerial photography, the film gives insight into the war's deadly subterranean struggle.
