Living After The Coalface

Twenty years after reporting on the Miners' Strike, Triona Holden returns to Brampton in South Yorkshire where the year-long dispute first began.

She finds out what happened to those involved on all sides: striking miners, those who returned to work, miners' wives and the police.

How have they re-built their lives? Was it worth fighting to save the pit communities? And after all this time, have old enemies been forgiven?
