The First 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.

What follows is very lighthearted look behind the scenes as managerment do their best to hide the realites of the coal industry.
