When Coal Was King.

A look at the lost world of coal mining and the social and cultural lives of those who worked in what was once Britain's most important industry, using footage from the 1940s to the 80s. With contributions by those who worked underground, lived in the pit villages and people who have been inspired by the coalfield culture, such as Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall. Narrated by Christopher Eccleston
