Coal TV

Reality TV is penetrating the mining business. Interest in Coal, a reality show covering the dangerous profession of coal mining in West Virginia has been aided by the recent media attention on the rescued Chilean miners.

Blue collar reality TV is a growing phenomenon. I can't wait to watch a series about working on the oil sands in Fort McMurray. Oh wait! There's already a movie about that.
