Cinemagazine 1962 10 mins


From Llanduff to Castleford via Wolstanton, on a whirlwind tour of intriguing and odd facets of the UK's coal industry. Coal-fired heating keeps Jacob Epstein's 'Christ in Majesty' sculpture warm in Llanduff Cathedral, while coal mine surveyor Johnny Pandritch has a poetic turn of phrase when it comes to the magic of Northumbria pits.
