About: The Price of Coal - Part 1
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 whrn 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
. .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).

Strong accents, I can still follow what they're saying, though.
Subtitles would be appreciated...
Okay but when they had well paying jobs they never gave a fuck about anybody else, now it's all boo hoo hoo ! Fuck em !
Great lot of nice banter as well
Can't understand a word of it.
