ONTAPtv.com has made the documentary Miners Shot Down available for streaming and download through its South African Video on Demand (VoD) service.
Miners Shot Down is the internationally acclaimed documentary about the 34 miners who were killed, and many others injured, during the platinum mine strike at Marikana in South Africa in August 2012. The documentary directed by Rehard Desai has been shown in 76 countries and this week won the Emmy for Best Documentary at the International Emmy Awards in New York.
