MS Minors leaving lift gate then shut with miners on lift. GV Man working steam winding equipment. CU Piston wheel turning. CU Machinery working. GV & MS Pithead wheel turning. GV Lift descends out of picture. MS Line of Miners have lamps checked. AT THE COAL FACE UNDERGROUND IN THE POWELL DUFFRYN CO. COLLIERY AT PENALLTA. MS Miner explains to camera "We are now 765 yards below the earth and about 1/4 mile from the pit bottom working what is known as a 4 feet seam". He moves away to show two men loading large chunks of coal onto a truck. MODERN PNEUMATIC PICKS GOUGE OUT MASSIVE LUMPS OF COAL. MCU Miner using pneumatic pick (x2 ). CU pick head into coal. MS Two miners piling up coal. MS Truck of coal, it is marked with chalk. MS Coal trucks move through picture. GV Truck onto lift. GV Truck arriving at pithead. GV Truck out of lift. GV Miner explaining "This is the Screen Tippler House, the trams of coal after leaving the pit top and coal having been weighed are now being unloaded. All the small coal below 3" mesh is taken out, and is further cleaned by a special plant. The large coal over 3" mesh passes onto a travelling table or picking belt, here any stone or inferior coal is removed, and the cleaned large coal is then loaded in the railway wagons". GV machines sorting coal. MS Truck onto machine is turned full circle. GV Large chunks of coal. Voice says "Leaving the Screen Tippler House we are now able to see the process of cleaning the large coal. The large coal is carried by the travelling table or picking belt and during its travel from the Tippler end to the railway wagon loading end all stone or foreign matter is removed. This picking belt is capable of dealing with nearly 150 tonnes per hour. The cleaning of the small coal which you will notice have been removed and which is being cleaned in a special plant." CU Coal being sorted. MS Coal elevator. Voice "We are now viewing the special plant for cleaning the coal below 3" mesh. On the left is the raw coal elevator. The coal and shale is fed into the primary wash box. This box separates the coal and the shale by the upward pulsation of the water in the box. This pulsation is caused by these valves that you see on the opposite side allowing air to pulsate the water upwards and downwards. The bed of coal and shale is raised up, the shale being heavier than coal sinks to the bottom onto the perforated plate and the coal is carried forward by the flow of the water. The shale being sunk to the bottom is elevated by the shale elevator to the storage tanker and is now ready to be taken away to the waste head. The coal leaves the end of the primary box for the sizing screen". Various shots of the process described. GV Tank engine pulls away with line of trucks.

The life of a Welsh miner can, at best, be described has hard, dangerous and unrelenting. Yet there was a special character to the pit towns which made them different to other industrial settlements elsewhere in the United Kingdom. Valley societies were stable and safe places to live with an instinctive democracy and cohesion of classes, where individuals were respected for themselves and their own personal qualities. Featuring extensive interviews of current and ex-miners, period imagery and archive footage, this DVD delves into the often humourous but always proud history of Welsh mining.

SOUNDBITE (English) Eddie Cullen, Miner: "At first, everyone was frightened when the pit shut but life has got to go on and we've still done well. There has been a lot of unemployment in Wales, but we've just got to travel further for the work, like me." WITH DIRE POVERTY AND HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RATES, SOUTH WALES RECEIVES NEARLY $333 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION TO BRING NEW OPPORTUNITIES AND HOPE TO THE VALLEYS REGION.

Sadly it's gone now, but with the EU funding we've got the leisure center now, we've got the college, we've got the school, we've got the hospital. It was going to be more development but we don't know what's going to happen now." DESPITE RECEIVING MORE MONEY FROM THE EU THAN IT CONTRIBUTES, OVER HALF OF THE WELSH ELECTORATE VOTED FOR BRITAIN TO LEAVE THE EU.

South Wales Coal Miner Tower Colliery (Permission Visit) - Disused Urbex Explore
A lovely look around a old South Wales Colliery, one thats a little closer to my heart as my late grandfather worked here for almost 40 years. Sadly today was a very wet rainy morning (no change for wales), so i promise i will go back a little closer to summer so i can get some proper footage. The coal mine is one of the longest working ones in the UK and has been around since the early 1800s when coal was close to the surface. It survived the miners strike shut down and in the late 1980s was bought out by the workers who kept it running until 2008, where it closed for the last time. It's now a open cast mine in the surrounding areas, but she still stands proud... a former beauty of what once was. Apologies about the rain on the lens.

The Real Cost of Open Cast Mining in South Wales
Proposals for an open cast mine at Nant Llesg, Rhymney will soon be submitted by Scottish developer Miller Argent. This will be a huge surface mine that would remain in operation for 17 years and excavate around 6m tonnes of coal from an area of around 3,000 acres - its eastern edge being just 500m from the town of Rhymney. Green Valleys Alliance is a consortium of local businesses with backing from the local community that launched its opposition to the proposals in July. The Alliance is concerned that the mine will have a negative impact on local jobs and investment in the area, be detrimental to the environment and people's quality of life and could make the local population vulnerable to long term health risks. Local businessman Mitchell Field, who employs 140 people at Rhymney-based cosmetics business Richards & Appleby Ltd and features in the video, said: "We have decided to release this video to highlight the negative impact that these proposals will have on the local area and show people exactly why our group is opposed to the creation of this mine." "The video shows the areas that will be affected - lush green fields and farm land that will be completely destroyed - and highlights our concerns about the real risk of job losses and economic decline in the area if this mine goes ahead."

South Wales Valleys, 1950's.  Archive film 92686
A day in the life of a valley town in Wales in the 1950's. The terraces of miner's cottages crammed into and along the valleys. Camera tracks along rows of back-to-back valleys streets. A huge detached chapel stand towering in the middle of one street. A young couple shot from behind walk down town steps. At the bottom they turn into a street and catch a single-decker bus. The bus driver is shot at work. Close-up: He is bespectacled and wears a smart peaked cap. A sequence of shots from the viewpoint of his cap shows narrow, tight streets and corners. The bus then leaves from town uphill. Another (double-decker) bus steers round tight bends as it climbs down the hill. It is seen on the crown of the hill, then descends into another valley town with tight streets. Here a terrace of houses rises in steps in typical Welsh valley style. A phlegmatic bus passenger smokes a pipe in the double-decker bus as it too winds into town. Then it crosses a railway with a goods train passing on a viaduct above and behind it (lovely shot). A group of passengers in cloth caps includes a man lighting a cigarette. Miners traipse into a colliery off the bus. Traffic passes along an arterial road with modern factories. Inside the factory people walk past machinery, then part to start the day's work. Outside again, a young man in coat and carrying a briefcase hurries along a village street. A class at Technical College. A quick sequence now shows others starting the working day: A miner collects his lamp from a long row; woman sits down at a working bench in the factory; man hurries breathless across another village street; man in overalls greets his female assistant and takes a working panel from her; miners in a group leave the lamp room for the winding cage; manruns through a pleasant garden and up the front steps of an old mansion, now the Technical College; indoors he enters a classroom and sits at his desk; a middle-aged teacher lectures on the structure of coalfields while man takes out his pen and opens a notebook. The lecturers hand points at a diagram of the 'Gellygaer Basin' on the blackboard; in the colliery the cage packed with men drops and disappears down the pit; then the wheels at the top of the winding mechanism once seen spinning. Men at benches in a workshop; a man working with a retort and Bunsen burner (or similar); men in overalls working on propellers and an enormous aero-engine; spinning machinery in a textile factory; brad baking; a man laying out freshly cleaned gloves at a dry cleaners; seamstresses at work and women packing gloves; a sort of cutting machine; engines and trucks at a major (possibly chemical?) works; woman working on electrical circuits and man entering data on his panel.

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

Has the town of Tonypandy forgiven Winston Churchill? | ITV News
Winston Churchill's decision to send the British Army to Tonypandy during the Welsh miners strikes in 1910 caused much ill feeling towards him in South Wales. Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell branded Winston Churchill a "villain" for his actions, provoking a furious rebuke from others. The wartime leader, who was later knighted, was voted the greatest Briton in a BBC poll in 2002. Ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who has written extensively on Churchill, said Mr McDonnell should be "ashamed" of his remarks. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/

After Coal: Welsh and Appalachian mining Communities sample.mov
Five minutes of selected scenes from After Coal - a documentary scheduled to begin production in 2012. While the Welsh coalmines were shut down in 1985, Appalachian coal reserves are just now starting to dwindle. Former mining towns such as Seven Sisters in Wales have 25 years experience working to rebuild their community and economy. Meanwhile, Appalachian mining towns are currently facing a double threat of chronic unemployment and environmental devastation from mountaintop removal coal mining. The U.S. Geological Survey recently revised its estimate of minable coal in the Appalachians from 80 to 30 years, increasing a sense of urgency about the region's future. As the Appalachians enter the last generation of mining, many are looking to Wales for answers. What happens when fossil fuels such as coal and oil are depleted? How do miners and other working people create sustainable livelihoods? Award winning director Tom Hansell explores these questions in After Coal: Welsh and Appalachian Mining Communities

The Last Coal Mine in Durham UK
5:35 - Going into the mine If you are around Durham or Newcastle I would HIGHLY recommend coming to visit Beamish Coal Mining village. It's a village that used to be thriving in 1913 and they set up the whole village with volunteers who dress and show you what life was like for people who worked in the "Pits" and their families. They have a few quaint little shops, a cable car that takes you around the whole village, a cute farm, old dentist offices, few rooms of museums where you can see old equipment, taxidermy and others old items.

Wage Cut in a Welsh Coal Mine
Economists have long noted that nominal wage cuts are often avoided by employers, even in the face of declining markets. But cuts do sometimes occur and were probably more prevalent than after WW2. This fictional episode shows a wage cut in a Welsh coal mine that takes place around the turn of the 20th century. The cut leads to a rift within the family.

The Case For Coal (1984) National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) - coal strike
A Campaign Video made for the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the wider Trade Union and Labour movement. Coal Not Dole. Produced by South Wales Miners' Video Project. and The Community Video Workshop, Cardiff. The miners' strike of 1984/1985 was major industrial action affecting the British coal industry. It was a defining moment in British industrial relations, and its defeat significantly weakened the British trades union movement. It was also seen as a major political and ideological victory for Margaret Thatcher and the Conservative Party. Coal was a nationalised industry and, as in most of Europe, was heavily subsidised. A number of mines ("pits") in the United Kingdom were profitable and remained open after the strike, including some operating as of 2007[1]. There were also a number of mines that were unprofitable and the government wanted to close. The viability of many of these mines was called into question but the government - in a hurry to avoid any further losses - closed many before reports were collated, instead of using temporary offers of increased redundancy pay to encourage miners into voting in favour of pit closures. In addition, all the mines required efficiency improvements in order to attain or increase their profitability, which was to be done by means of increased mechanisation. Many unions resisted this as it would necessarily result in job cuts. The strike became a symbolic struggle, since the miners' union was one of the strongest in the country. The strike ended with the defeat of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) by the Conservative government, which then proceeded to consolidate its free market programme. The political power of the NUM was broken permanently. The dispute exposed deep divisions in British society and caused considerable bitterness, especially in Northern England and in South Wales. Ten deaths resulted from events around the strike, which is exceptional in the history of British industrial relations.

As early as 1914 economical and political concepts were moulding the future of the Welsh colliers and jeopardising the existence of many valley towns and coal pits. This DVD examines the years from the start of World War One to the 1980s and the aftermath of 'the bitter end'. War, strikes, depression and political and environmental wrangling would ultimately see a once thriving, vital industry and the proud men who worked in it decimated and many a town and village fall by the wayside. Featuring extensive interviews of current and ex-miners, period imagery and archive footage, this DVD delves into the often humourous but always proud history of Welsh mining.

Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales (1926)
Miners and their families in the mining towns of the Welsh valleys just before the General Strike of May 1926, an unsuccessful attempt to force the government to act to prevent wage reduction and worsening conditions for coal miners. This extract comes from Claude Friese-Greene's 'The Open Road' - originally filmed in 1925/6 and now re-edited and digitally restored by the BFI National Archive. Britain seen in colour for the first time was heralded as a great technical advance for the cinema audience - now we can view a much improved image, but one which still stays true to the principles of the colour process. The rather haphazard journey from Land's End to John O'Groats creates a series of moving picture postcards. Look out for shots containing the component colours - red and blue-green - such as when a little girl in a red coat and hat walks among peacocks in the grounds of a castle, and three girls with red curly hair pose by the sea at Torquay. The car is a Vauxhall D-type - considered a sporty model at the time. A long-distance journey by car was a relatively new concept, with none of the amenities en route now taken for granted. The visit to a petrol station shows smoking on the forecourt: no health and safety issues back then! The travelogue ends with a series of recognisable London landmarks. Much remains the same - one major exception being the volume of traffic on the roads.

Heading Underground at 'The Great Cwmystwyth Mines' in Wales
https://www.facebook.com/carlthepianist Photographers Andy T and Carl Lewis explore the subterrainain, 19th century Level Fawr of the Cwmystwyth mine. High up in the Cambrian Mountains, the young Afon Ystwyth flows through a deep glacial valley. Cwm Ystwyth is considered the most important non-ferrous metal mining site in Wales providing a premier example of mining heritage in Ceredigion. Within the site there is evidence for all phases of mining activity; from the Bronze Age, through the medieval period, to its revival in the 18th century and the peak of activity with a subsequent decline in the late 19th and the early 20th century. It has been designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.[1] The site also features prominently in the Upland Ceredigion Landscape of Historic Interest. Our trip was prepared for a planned and we took all suitable precautions to protect our safety. Please see the following website for more information on the dangers of exploration and how to reduce risk: http://www.mine-explorer.co.uk/open-htm-white-paper.asp?id=1 Please ensure of you are both prepared and have permission before entering any mine of cave.
