Trapped - The Chile Miners' Story
Trapped alive longer and deeper underground than anybody in history, the 33 Chilean miners somehow survived to be rescued.
For weeks, Panorama followed and engineers at the surface as they worked to free the men. But should they ever have been trapped in the first place? Reporter Dan McDougall reveals new evidence of massive safety problems in the mine being ignored just weeks before the collapse.
During his weeks spent covering this story, Dan McDougall corresponded with trapped miner Edison Pena. The 34-year-old became known as "the Runner" after he coped with the long wait for rescue by running through the remaining tunnels and exercising.
In an interview with Panorama after he was freed along with his colleagues last week, Edison Pena said he feels that he is a changed man and "more human" for his ordeal.
