NATIONAL COAL BOARD COLLECTION VOLUME 1
PORTRAIT OF A MINER
From intimate drama-documentaries and sublime safety cartoons to the sheer pleasure of the topical tales to be discovered within the Mining Review cinemagazine, this collection is a beguiling invitation into the domestic, community and working life of miners and their families.
In stories from the coalfields of Scotland, Wales and England - from pit ponies to brass bands, industrial accidents to the five-day week - this set presents over five hours of remastered material, and contains an extensive booklet featuring newly commissioned contributions from writer Lee Hall (Billy Elliot), and curators and specialists in industrial filmmaking.
Warning: King Coal contains light patterns which may be harmful to viewers susceptible to epileptic seizures
