• When British Coal Was King - BBC Mining Part 1

    Timeshift explores the lost world of coal mining and the extraordinarily rich social and cultural lives of those who worked in what was once Britain's most important industry. It's a story told through a largely forgotten film archive that movingly documents the final years of coal's heyday from the 1940s to the 1980s. One priceless piece of footage features a ballet performance by tutu-wearing colliers. Featuring contributions from those who worked underground, those who lived in the pit villages, those who filmed them at work and at play and those - like Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall - who have been inspired by what made coalfield culture so unique. Narrated by Christopher Eccleston

    On Tuesday 13 October 1992, Tory MP Michael Heseltine announced the immediate closure of 31 pits. The announcement was subsequently referred to as 'Black Tuesday'. Between 1992 and 1993, the UK Government's energy policy resulted in a massive reduction in the country's deep mining capability, paving the way for privatisation of the few remaining collieries. This video features interviews with mineworkers from Bilsthorpe and Silverhill collieries, two Nottinghamshire pits that became the focus for media attention during the 90 day consultation period imposed by High Court ruling. The men describe the run-up to 'Black Tuesday' its immediate impact and long term effects on labour relations, employment opportunities and working practices.

  • Inside The Underground Labyryth - Coal Mining Documentary - FIlms

    Inside The Underground Labyryth - Coal Mining Documentary - FIlms Coal mining is to acquire charcoal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy material, and, given that the 1880s, has been widely utilized to create electricity. Steel and also cement sectors make use of charcoal as a gas for extraction of iron from iron ore as well as for cement manufacturing. In the Usa, United Kingdom, as well as South Africa, a charcoal mine and its frameworks are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" usually describes an underground coal mine. Coal mining has actually had several growths over the current years, from the early days of males tunneling, excavating and manually extracting the coal on carts to huge open cut and long wall mines.

My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focussing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!

On Tuesday 13 October 1992, Tory MP Michael Heseltine announced the immediate closure of 31 pits. The announcement was subsequently referred to as 'Black Tuesday'. Between 1992 and 1993, the UK Government's energy policy resulted in a massive reduction in the country's deep mining capability, paving the way for privatisation of the few remaining collieries. This video features interviews with mineworkers from Bilsthorpe and Silverhill collieries, two Nottinghamshire pits that became the focus for media attention during the 90 day consultation period imposed by High Court ruling. The men describe the run-up to 'Black Tuesday' its immediate impact and long term effects on labour relations, employment opportunities and working practices. Research and interviews by Dr David Amos (former mineworker - Silverhill), edited and produced by Paul Fillingham (mineworker's son - Blidworth). Produced in association with the University of Nottingham, this pilot production forms part of the Arts Humanities and Research Council (AHRC) 'Connected Communities' Programme.

This is the story of the miners in world war two. My channel on you tube : http://www.youtube.com/alanheath is one of the most prolific from Poland, although unfortunately not the most visited. With almost one film per day, one may be forgiven for thinking I do nothing else but I do have a day job as well. I have produced almost 600 original films, most in English but also in Polish, French, Italian, Spanish and the occassional hint of German and Hebrew. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focussing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!

Timeshift explores the lost world of coal mining and the extraordinarily rich social and cultural lives of those who worked in what was once Britain's most important industry. It's a story told through a largely forgotten film archive that movingly documents the final years of coal's heyday from the 1940s to the 1980s. One priceless piece of footage features a ballet performance by tutu-wearing colliers. Featuring contributions from those who worked underground, those who lived in the pit villages, those who filmed them at work and at play and those - like Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall - who have been inspired by what made coalfield culture so unique. Narrated by Christopher Eccleston

Inside The Underground Labyryth - Coal Mining Documentary - FIlms Coal mining is to acquire charcoal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy material, and, given that the 1880s, has been widely utilized to create electricity. Steel and also cement sectors make use of charcoal as a gas for extraction of iron from iron ore as well as for cement manufacturing. In the Usa, United Kingdom, as well as South Africa, a charcoal mine and its frameworks are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" usually describes an underground coal mine. Coal mining has actually had several growths over the current years, from the early days of males tunneling, excavating and manually extracting the coal on carts to huge open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires making use of draglines, vehicles, conveyors, jacks as well as shearers. Small scale mining of surface area deposits goes back hundreds of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were making use of all major coalfields (conserve those of North and also South Staffordshire) by the late Second century AD. [1] While much of its use stayed neighborhood, a dynamic field created along the North Sea shore providing charcoal to Yorkshire and also London. The Industrial Change, which started in Britain in the 18th century, as well as later spread to continental Europe and The united state and canada, was based upon the availability of coal to power vapor engines. International trade expanded exponentially when coal-fed steam engines were developed for the railways and also steamships. The new mines that grew up in the 19th century depended on guys and children to work lengthy hrs in often risky working problems. There were many coalfields, however the earliest remained in Newcastle as well as Durham, South Wales, the Central Belt of Scotland and also the Midlands, such as those at Coalbrookdale. The earliest constantly worked deep-mine in the United Kingdom is Tower Colliery in South Wales valleys in the heart of the South Wales coalfield. This colliery was created in 1805, and its miners bought it out at the end of the 20th century, to avoid it from being closed. Tower Colliery was lastly closed on 25 January 2008, although manufacturing continues at the Aberpergwm drift mine had by Walter Energy. Charcoal was extracted in The u.s.a in the early 18th century, as well as advertisement mining began around 1730 in Midlothian, Virginia. Coal-cutting devices were developeded in the 1880s. Before this creation, coal was mined from underground with a choice and also shovel. By 1912, surface mining was carried out with steam shovels made for coal mining.
