The producers of the planned war film Beneath Hill 60, about the Australian miners who dug tunnels under the western front during World War I, want to identify the only Aboriginal man among their number.
"One of the major characters, Billy (Streaky) Bacon, is an Aboriginal tunneller and it would be invaluable to our writer to know the true story," said producer Bill Leimbach.
Brendan Cowell, Hugo Weaving, Gyton Grantley and John Hannah are due to play miners who fought what the film-makers call "a silent war" beneath the trenches in Europe. The film is to be directed by actor-turned-film-maker Jeremy Sims.
