Devils Dust Movie Trailer – The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton

Devils Dust Movie Trailer – The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton

Devil’s Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock’s 2009 book Killer Company, Devil’s Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series’ production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies.

BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went.

We didn’t know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company’s name stamped on sheets of “fibro” in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain.

Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company.

Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries’ products.

Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton’s fight against James Hardie.

Beautiful 1880’s West Australian Pub – Art Deco Interior & Story of Aboriginal Racism

Just thinking …. it is so much easier to interview Aboriginal people and their families than white people… the reason being is that they have struggled all their life… and all they want to do is to share their stories, it really needs to be told….please pass the word that I need to interview other Families and Elders in the Great Southern of Western Australia…pictures and words nice, but spoken word…simply beautiful.

This also goes out to the residents of my hometown, Kukerin and other rural Great Southern Town for their stories, especially the older folk, old farmers, local legends, you know what I mean….please consider it and I promise you a beautiful story and a beautiful video… you, your family, your great great great grandchildren to treasure forever… a Sherman never breaks their promise … (billy@westnet.com.au) … PS: The Courage is In You!
