By the end of the notorious 1984/85 miners' strike many wanted to
forget their painful experiences. Thirty years on people are ready
to look back and talk about what happened in England during this
defining moment of industrial action. Beverley Trounce, who worked
in a pit village and whose father was a miner, has interviewed a
number of the people directly affected by the strike. Her research
and contributions from ex-miner and activist Charlie Cibor cover
the pickets, the collieries, the matter of simple survival through
the extreme and grinding poverty of the time, the effects on the
women and children involved and the wider community, as well as the
aftermath and what its legacy means to people today.
