Hello ModifiedMethod! I would like to use a few seconds of this video for Billy Elliot the musical in Finland. Please contact me about the license fees/rights asap. Thank you!
my granddad always said "king coal" .A miner who also fought right through ww1 from day one to the last . when Churchill said the miners are all traitors and should be lined up against a wall and shot during the general strike it hurt him more than all the other pain in his life .

Who's know about coal english miners on Spassk (Kazakhstan) around 1905-1915 years? Write to me
wot about coal mining Larkhall Scotland been trying find it on new tube just seen can't
as if the last mine has closed down in Britain
The fuel which powered the industrial  revolution, and saved this country through two world wars, is now a forbidden fuel,  I was a miner for thirteen years, hand coaling, before mechanisation ,and afterward's, our colliery as over 300 year's  old, and  still hadreserve's for another generation,  before thatcher got her revenge , on the mining industry ,now there isn't a deep mine producing coal in this country
I was a miner from 1957 to 88, I believe Maggie Thatcher closed the pits and moth balled the coal until all other fossil fuels are exhusted.
As Carbon resources dwindle, technologies emerge and global politics become even more uncertain - there WILL come a time at which it is economic to dig this coal back out again - and there's a great deal left. It is probably this country's greatest asset.
Thanks for posting.
