About: The Price of Coal - Part 1
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
. .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 ! "...
