This review is from: The Miners' Campaign Tapes [DVD]  (DVD)
These films show how the Thatcher government set aside the rule book, the media turned a blind eye to, and in a lot of cases completely distorted the facts beyond recognition, and totally misrepresented the miners. They show the police in huge numbers brutalising the miners with total immunity from any comeback, many on horseback. The films show how this was no ordinary industrial dispute, but was in effect a one sided war - how you don't mess with Thatcher & Co. Very sad. Now look at us, importing nearly all our fuel, next to no industry left, but still reading the Sun. Nothing much has changed really, oh except now we have X Factor now of course!
