The 1984 Miners Strike - Then and Now

Here's more on the 1984 Miners Strike. This webpage is about a documentary in the making; it is based on the 20-year later follow-up by a guy who photographed a number of demonstrations and confrontations, who lived with the miners and was quite involved in their struggle, although as a journalist and therefore necessarily a bit of an outsider. He is now tracing down some of the people he grew close to during the strike to see what their lives have brought them in the intervening years, when twenty-nine out of every thirty mining jobs have disappeared.
