(47 minutes) posted to RMTV January 2011
Videos in date order

The Miners' Film documents the industrial action by miners in the winter of 1973-74 which helped to bring down Edward Heath's Tory government. The strike is seen as part of the successful opposition to the government's income policy. The film charts this crisis from inside the labour movement but also reflects the miners' historical and political understanding of it, informed by memories of the 1926 General Strike. Produced by Cinema Action, a London-based collective which produced 'socialist campaign films' between 1968 and 1981.
