Trapped Chile miners send video message

A newly-released video appears to show that 33 miners trapped deep underground in Chile are in good spirits.

The footage was taken with a camera dropped down the narrow bore-hole that is the miners' lifeline to the surface.

The men have already been told they may not be rescued until Christmas.

The BBC's Gideon Long reports from Chile.
