About: The Price of Coal - Part 1
Filmed in Thorpe Hesley, used to play around pit openin as a kid, not alot of people know this but once me and mi mates started a big fire that set old pit beams on fire that burned for weeks underground wi fire brigade attending for days on end to try n put it out, anyways nice film this
I went down this pit as a kid on a school visit before the disaster, loved living in that area when I was a kid, seems a long time ago now and I left the area eventually in 1986 . I believe looking at the internet that my former school Darfield Foulstone High School is no more, nothing stays the same, only the memories of long summers fishing at the horseshoe pond.

When men were men and women were women and you could smoke inside

Ahh I miss the "Kes" accent .. used to live up there.. much more genuine and "real" than living down here.. wish I could move back.. was worst thing I ever did was move south.. these folk are the best you will ever find for honesty and good living as hard as it is.
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.

Heartbreaking how the forced diversity in this and many other working class regions has changed the landscape of our once Great nation for ever.
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
