"Still the Enemy With" is an award-winning documentary that gives a unique insight into one of history's most dramatic events: the 1984-85 British Miners' Strike. No experts. No politicians. This is the raw, emotional and ultimately inspiring story of those who lived through Britain's longest strike. In 1984, Margaret Thatchers Conservative government declared war on Britain's unions, taking on the strongest in the country, the National Union of Mineworkers. Following a secret plan the government began closing coal mines, which threatened not just an industry but whole communities and a way of life.
160 000 miners took up the fight and became part of a battle that would change the course of history. Featuring never-before-seen archive footage, this gripping documentary follows the incredible true story of the miners on the frontline. With moving and often funny contributions from miners' wives and supporters - including the real life story behind hit film 'Pride' - this is a chronicle both of personal drama and of events that shaped the world today. Accompanied by a soulful, timely soundtrack. "Still the Enemy Within" challenges us to look again at our past so that in the words of one miner, "we can still seek to do something about the future".
