When British Coal Was King - BBC Mining Part 1
 
15:00
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.

The Last Coal Mine in Durham UK
 
21:55
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.

A Brief History of the UK Coal Miners Strike 1984 85
 
06:12
The video looks at the UK coal miners strike which took place between 1984-85. The main leaders reviewed in the video are Arhur Scargill and Margaret Thatcher. Following the Coal Miners strike Trade Unions within the UK lost a lot of power and the nationalised coal industry was reduced massively. There was often battles between the police and miners during the strike. However, the media was very biased against the strikes until channel four filmed from the miners perspective. The video looks at the impact of the UK Miner's strike made to the miners families and the impact it had n families and communities are often over looked. The Coal industry is still active today however, not to the scale that it was in the 1970's and 80's.

Coal Mine At Comrie Colliery - 1945 British Council Film Collection - CharlieDeanArchives
 
16:23
An overview of the progressive facilities at the Comrie Colliery coal mine in Scotland, with an emphasis on the steps taken to ensure worker welfare there. Trivia: When The New Mine was made in 1945, there were around 1000 coal mines operating in the UK. Today, there are less than a dozen. Described in The New Mine as a "pit-head of the new world", Comrie Colliery in Fife operated from 1936 to 1986. In spite of the film's optimistic claim that the mine would "stand the test of time", and comments on the safety of its operations, the Comrie Colliery site is now derelict. Despite The New Mine's praise for the cutting-edge techniques employed at the mine, the disused site was recently described by Fife Council as the "largest area of post-industrial dereliction in West Fife". The land around the mine, clearly discernible from above, is reported to be heavily polluted, contaminated with cyanide, and the 40 metre high pile of coal waste (seen forming in the film) has purportedly been burning since the 1970s. Nonetheless, there has recently been movement towards the redevelopment of the site. This film has been made available by the British Council Film Collection for non-commercial research and educational purposes . . The British Council Film Collection consists of 120 short documentaries made by the British Council during the 1940s designed to show the world how Britain lived, worked and played.

Sea Coal - UK
 
14:12
July 2006 Joe Smith, now in his 70s, is one of the last remaining sea coal collectors in England. Working down the shore from the mines, he collects coal washed up by the sea. "It's a beautiful job. It keeps you healthy", states Joe. In its heyday, hundreds of other people worked alongside him, collecting an average of 2,000 tons of a coal every weekend. But since the mines have closed and demand for coal fallen, the others have slowly disappeared. "Now it's just old codgers like us."

Coal Mines
 
43:44
The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, jacks and shearers. - H&T

Hunting History: UNDERGROUND RIVER FOUND AT UKS BIGGEST COAL MINE!
 
18:15
We went out recently over Daw Mill Colliery one of the UKs largest coal producers before its closure to see whats now become of this once thriving site. we had a good explore above ground and then started below were we came across a pretty fast flowing underground river! Daw mill colliery history: Daw Mill was the largest mine and biggest producer of coal in its region, located just outside of a town called Nuneaton. It first opened in 1956 with the first shaft being sunk between 1956-1959 and the second sunk between 1969-1971. The mine was a natural extension of former collieries Kingsbury and dexter all of which mined in the five metre Warwickshire coal field known as the Warwickshire thick. After the denationalisation of the coal industry Daw Mill was brought by UKCoal and by 2008 nearly 700 people worked at the mine, it was also this year that Daw Mill produced over 3.25million tons of coal beating a 13 year old record for annual output. However as early as 2009 talks about Daw Mill future had begun with coal prices dropping each year and railway threats to business. In 2009 Daw Mill was rated the most technologically advanced and most productive mine in Europe. The colliery was situated on the Birmingham to nuneaton line just east of the former Shustoke railway station. In 1983 an inclined tunnel linking underground workings with the surface was completed. This drift mining enabled Daw Mill to increase its production capacity as it removed the often time-consuming process of winding coal up the shafts. On record 3 men have been killed at Daw Mill in mining accidents in 2006 and 2007. In 2011 UKCoal was fined 1.2million pounds for safety breaches. On 22nd February 2013 a major fire broke out in the mine 500 metres underground and was described as the worst underground blaze in Britain for 30 years, no one was injured however with the fire unable to be put out for months the damage left behind compared with profits each year was not justified and the mine never re-opened after the fire. Daw Mill was the last remaining colliery in the West Midlands, once operating 20 collieries. Most the the Daw Mill site has now been demolished and the remaining buildings in recent years have really taken a beating from vandals (even last year the remaining buildings were in pretty good shape) unfortunately id never taken my camera before so thought I would this time to film what remains. most of the shoots with the convyer belts are now filled completely with water and only one still has room to get down into, the house remains, power room, a couple of odd sheds and warehouses, and of course all the underground fun. This video will be in 2 parts so keep an eye out for the second part coming soon! if you could drop the page a subscribe and like the video that’ll be much appreciated cheers all!

IMPORTANT: SO the audio for the scene outside my great-grandad's house has messed up and isn't playable on THE YOUTUBE APP for some reason, but can be played properly on a laptop or desktop site on mobile. Apologies, Premiere Pro is being a twat right now. This is a short documentary I made for my Final Major Project for college. Looking at the history of coal mining in areas such as Newstead and Pleasley. DISCLAIMER: Pleasley is in Derbyshire, but it was the most convenient and interesting country park and mining museum I could visit, as others such as Bestwood Country Park where only open on weekends at inconvenient times. Sorry to mislead. Also looking at the lives of miners, Thatcher's government and the miners strike of 1984-5 with mining unions. This was only 5 minutes long and wasn't as informative as I'd like but I will be making a 10 minute version of this documentary with more footage that I'd filmed. Also excuse how gross I look at the start of this documentary XD. Before all the technical stuff, first I want to give a massive thanks to Pleasley Pit Trust for the amazing work they've done protecting and ensuring the care and preservation of the colliery for everyone to enjoy. I'd definitely recommend visiting Pleasley Pit and hope they can continue their amazing work. Another massive thanks to Paul Dinsdale for letting me interview him and for being in my documentary! I'll be seeing you at the colliery!

A Short History of Coal and Coal Mining in England

The brilliant and gifted Lowell Bartholomee created this shiny little diamond from Mr. P's fern-like script as a (mock) educational film for the 2004 production of "The Road To Wigan Pier: A (Socialist) Tea-Time Travelogue & Historical Musical Revue," although all the facts are researched and real. The voices you hear are David Jarrott narrating, Paul Norton as A Lump of Coal (and the Mighty Fern!). The Early Man is Judson Jones and the crowds are sundry gentlemen from the production itself. You can read the review ("Off the charts wraparound sensory experience . . . live music, text, film, dance, still photos . . . a ridiculous amount of fun.” Molly Beth Brenner, Austin Chronicle 2004) as confirmation that, yes, we did stage that play! http://www.austinchronicle.com/arts/2004-01-23/193886/

Coal Mining the Modern Way: Newcastle, 1957

A silent newsreel item from 1957 about mechanised coal mining procedures at the Awaba State Coal Mine, near Newcastle in New South Wales. The item opens with shots of miners going down into, and later leaving, the mine. We see older footage of miners underground using picks and shovels to break up the coal and load it onto carts. A pit pony takes the coal away. The newsreel contrasts this with the modern methods of cutting coal from the coalface using a machine. Two miners bore a hole in the coalface and set explosives. Coal is loaded into a truck using a mechanical loader and taken to storage bins by a locomotive. A conveyor belt takes the coal from the mine to the Crusher Shed where it is transported away by truck. Coal Mining the Modern Way, Newcastle, NSW, 1957. NFSA title: 128513

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.

British coal: Proposed new opencast mine causes division
 
02:20
You might have thought that coal mining in Britain belongs in the past. The last deep mine closed a year ago but surface mining continues, even if the government is committed to phasing out fossil fuels. Now a proposal to open a new mine on a stretch of Druridge bay, on England's north-east coast, has aroused strong feelings.

When British Coal Was King - BBC Mining Part 4
 
14:01
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
