Death at the Gasworks, from These Walls Have Ears: My Place 2013

This is a tale of three deaths at The Rocks and a silent killer. The backdrop is the city's first gasworks. A neighbour to houses and schools, the gasworks gave its power (and industrial pollution) back to its community, and keeps on giving today, long after its smokestacks stood tall. Produced by Jessica Minshall.
