Burning Issues (2009) The Miners’ Strike – 25 Years On

The Miners’ Strike – 25 Years On

The 12th of March 2009 marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the start of the Miners’ Strike of 1984-85. To celebrate the occasion, Banner Theatre has produced a DVD of Burning Issues, the video-ballad production it created for the strike’s 20th anniversary in 2004, made with members of Britain’s mining communities and which toured coalfield and former coalfield communities and elsewhere throughout England and Wales in 2004-05.
