British Miner's Tapes

1984, 17:00 minutes, colour, English


This tape examines the way in which the news media represented and mis-represented the events of the N.U.M. Strike of 1984. The Miners' Campaign Videotapes were made by a group of ACTT Technicians and Film & Video Workshops and have been endorsed by NUM (National Union of Miners) Great Britain. The proceeds from tape rentals go to the Support Fund for the Miners' Strike.
