About: The Price of Coal - Part 1

When the Duke Of Edinburgh came the bridge leading up the hill from Stairfoot to Barnsley had to be repainted several times to eradicate the pithy comments graffitied up there. The ruling classes hate and despise the working classes ,the feeling is largely mutual.
where can i buy this dvd
where do you get these jems i love ken loach films.seen most but not this one.its great how he brings to life everyday struggles
Ken Loach,, commie bastard,,☠️☠️🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
Heartbreaking how the forced diversity in this and many other working class regions has changed the landscape of our once Great nation for ever.
Fucking brilliant
Terrific production and acting. Until I noticed Stan Richards I thought this was a real fly-on-the-wall documentary film. Really very enjoyable. Don't wish to cause a 'spoiler alert' but 1:13:14 was flipping hilarious!
Salt of the earth
I watch this constantly. Kes is good but for me this is better. Absolutely fantastic TV. Some of the funniest ad libs I've ever heard.
RIP..Bobby Knutt...a great cast and natural acting..pity Britain died in 1979 when the snatcher came into power.
Please increase the sound!...I'm unable to hear it..
59.24 we had a setee with that fabric - nice moss and lichen greens.  :D
Pure gold.
5:59  . .not a good picture . . .your not kidding!
I was expecting the visit to be cancelled at the last minute.
Absolutely brilliant ! I was born in Barnsley, but moved to Canada when i was very young. We moved back to England again in 1976-1977 and then when back to Canada. My dad was a coal miner as was all his brothers. I did our Family tree and my relations right back to the 1600's were all coal miners. I ended becoming a Mining Engineer - go figure :)
Absolutely brilliant. My sound wasn't so good but the repartee between the miners was wonderful. The little boy was amazing. He did the right thing - he went fishing ! Now on to Price of Coal part 2.
Along with the brilliant 'Bill Brand', Sid Storey is one of the greatest political television characters of all time; the first role I ever played in Drama at Mexborough Comprehensive (I was only 12, but it politicized me on The Left for life). RIP Bobby Knutt.
LOL....the kid was watching "IT'S A KNOCKOUT ! "...
HA HA ! Reminds somewhat of "RIFF-RAFF" with Ricky Tomlinson (which Ken Loach also directed).
