Product Description

The life of a Welsh miner can, at best, be described as hard, dangerous and unrelenting. Yet there was a special character in the pit towns that made them different from other industrial settlements elsewhere in the United Kingdom. Valley societies were stable and safe places to live with an instinctive democracy and cohesion of classes, where individuals were respected for themselves and their own personal qualities. Featuring extensive intevriews with current and ex-miners, period imagery and archive footage, this programme delves into the often humorous but always proud history of Welsh mining.

5.0 out of 5 stars The History of Welsh Mining 31 Dec 2010
By joe
I have learnt a lot from this DVD that is the history of coal mining mostly in South Wales. Ex miners recall their lives underground and above ground, and of how they worked and of the accidents that occured. I was hoping that the DVD would also cover North Wales, where my wife's ancestors came from, so I was a little dissapointed there, but we both enjoyed it.
