1952 9 mins


This edition of Mining Review from January 1952 covers the inauguration of a new shaft in Nottinghamshire, a 'free week' at Pwllheli Butlins in Wales and a golfing break from work. There's also a visit to Southall Studios where actor John Gregson shoots a scene from The Brave Don't Cry, a dramatic recreation of a recent mining disaster. A retired mine inspector is on hand to make sure the set designer gets things right.
