Summary

Tracing the story of generations of men in Donegal who flocked to tunnel out Britain's mines and infrastructure - a line broken only by fleeting prosperity at home. From the current wave working on London's Crossrail to the men who tunnelled hard rock in the mines and hydro schemes across Scotland in the 1940s and 50s, this programme tells the story of life in all its harshness, humour and beauty.
