This compilation explores the history and legacy of coal-mining through material drawn from the British Film Institute (BFI) National Archive’s documentary and fiction collections. Part of a new series of events about Britain's 20th century industrial heritage, it offers a remarkable insight into an industry which came to define 20th century Britain. Jan Feull of the BFI will introduce King Coal, which will be accompanied by the shorts Whitehaven Whippets and A Cumbrian Adventure - these are a rare and wonderful opportunity to enjoy a very local flavour from the past.
