About: NCB Training film
I worked at Ashington Colliery. When doing my above ground training I saw cupboards full of training films laying about. Those films were not saved.
When I left university in 1968 with a mining degree, my first 6 months was spent shovelling coal on a 'hand filled' face, ie the old cyclical system shown here. A great video.
They need to now do Coal Mining history in schools for the generation who never knew and seen a coal mine as Coal Mining will live for ever in are memories who remember Coaling mining in the UK
Great video. A forgotten history.
I really in joyed this video
