The second of two TV plays written by Barry Hines and directed by Ken Loach which were bracketed together as the British "miniseries" The Price of Coal. Both stories took place in Yorkshire, and both concerned a grungy coal-mining community. 'Back To Reality' is a far more bleaker look at the coal industry than the lighthearted first part 'Meet The People', giving an alternate look an industry where possible injury and death could be could be one mistake away.
