InformationrnrnIn the remote goldfields of Western Australia - a land of "red dust, black flies and white heat" - an ambitious young American geologist embarked on a remarkable career that would ultimately lead him to the White House as the thirty-first President of the United States.rnrnHis extraordinary story is told in Hoover\'s Gold. By the 1890s, Western Australia\'s goldfields were a lure for ambitious adventurers - both young and old - from the far corners of the world. In 1897, the twenty-three-year-old Herbert Hoover, on assignment from the London firm of Bewick Moreing and Company, arrived to assess the viability of the ever-growing portfolio of gold mines under the company\'s management.rnrnArriving in Coolgardie, Hoover worked feverishly, appraising mines and scouting for new prospects for the company\'s London investors. It was his identification of the Sons of Gwalia mine at Leonora as one "well worth securing control of" that was to be the turning point in his fortunes as well as those of thousands of Italians and other southern Europeans who were to journey to Western Australia to work in the goldfields.rnrnInstalled as the manager of the mine, Hoover contracted several Italians as underground workers with the promise that, if they proved satisfactory, the way would be open to "the employment of many more". He was determined to cut costs and undermine the growing strength of the trade union movement. He found the Italians "fully twenty per cent superior" and "the rivalry between them and the other men is of no small benefit."rnrnIn the decades to come, many Italian migrants, mostly from Italy\'s north, arrived in Western Australia to work in Bewick Moreing-controlled mines. The biggest and most enduring Italian community was associated with the Sons of Gwalia. It had rapidly become one of Australia\'s deepest and richest mines, and being sufficiently distant from Kalgoorlie-Boulder\'s "Golden Mile", it had developed a character and significance all of its own.rnrnHoover\'s Gold tells the parallel stories of the young Hoover and the Italian workers he championed. Filmed on location in Western Australia and the United States, the program includes interviews with some of the descendants of the original miners - John Calegari, Renzo Mazza, Margo Patroni, Lucia Raymond, John Gandini and Tony Mateljan. Some of the miners were to be caught up in the infamous anti-foreigner riots that exploded in Kalgoorlie-Boulder on the Australia Day weekend of 1934. There are also interviews with several U.S. and Australian experts - Tim Walch, Ron Limbaugh, Patrick Bertola, Richard Harley and Criena Fitzgerald, all of whom have differing perspectives on Hoover, the Italians and the Sons of Gwalia. .rnrnTechnical SpecsrnVideo Bitrate: 2001 KbpsrnVideo Resolution: 688 x 384 - 16:9rnVideo Codec: x264 (2-pass) MPEG-4 AVCrnCustom Matrix: Yes (EQM AVC-HR)rnAverage QP: I=14.79, P=17.07 & B=18.12rnAudio Codec: AAC 24 KHzrnAudio BitRate: 128kbsrnAudio Channels: 2 ChrnRunTime: 00:52rnFramerate: 20.000 fpsrnNumber Of Parts: 1rnPart Size: 744 MBrnRipped by gavin63rnSubtitles: NO TV CaprnSource: DVB SBS ChannelrnrnRelease Notesrn* This is x264 codec and not compatible with stand alone DVD divx playersrn* I recommend using VLC or Media Player Classic for playbackrn* Will it be released in Xvid/Divx - Not by me.
