An Idea of Underground Coal Mines

It's pretty good for showing what some underground coal mines are like. In Australia, most use a longwall miner instead of a continuous miner like this one, but it's still good for an idea. It's also been dramatised quite a lot, but that has to be expected with TV shows.
