Summary:
Television broadcast created by Hal Linker with his wife, Halla, and son, David. Footage was shot in Johannesburg, South Africa. Scenes include miners working in a gold mine, gold processing to create large gold bars, "boss boys", and Sunday afternoon tribal competition dances. Although not addressed in the program, this film was created during apartheid (racial segregation) and the mine workers are men separated from their families and ancestral lands.
