: The Miners' Strike

The winter of 1984-5 saw Britain's beleaguered mining communities torn apart as Arthur Scargill 's National Union of Mineworkers waged war with the Thatcher government. As striking miners fought with their working counterparts, pickets locked horns with police in some of the most violent confrontations in British industrial history. Five young men from a Yorkshire village were thrown into the mayhem and this documentary follows the five "flying pickets" through their year of living dangerously. Capturing the huge passions aroused by the strike, the film also examines its irrevocable impact on Britain's future. Contains strong language.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
