Safe Mode: On
Portrait of a Miner (1)

40 years on..

as soon as you see the men going to the mine head at 5.30am to start their days work carrying their Davey Lamps and picks you know that we're in for another visual treat. starting in 1939, a National Coal Board film follows men from the Bagworth Colliery doing their hard work to extract the coal upon which the nation relied. The Second World War was just begining to stir..

superb footage of the period, almost ethnographical in detail.

a long film but well worth watching if you like industrial history films in full colour black and white like this is..
