Summary *Coarse Language and Nudity*In the second episode of this four-part series we are in British Columbia in Western Canada. Before this, the only women to infiltrate this logging community arrived in bikinis on the pages of magazines. When real women turn up to train as 'fallers' - the toughest job of all - the loggers aren't impressed. It's hardly surprising as Tracy, Helen and Anna wear lipstick, pink bobble hats and squeal quite a lot.But although these three high-flying career women - a business consultant, a feminist PhD student and an army captain - struggle with chainsaws, 100ft trees and sexist attitudes, in the end one of them has a nifty saw action that wins respect.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Produced and Directed by Barbie McLauren, and Executive Producer: Patrick Holland. A Ricochet production
