: Brassed Off - the Miners' Strike and beyond

Kirsty Young marks the 21st anniversary of the miners' strike, which ended on 5 March
1985 following a 12-month conflict that was among the most ugly and socially divisive of the last century. The programme recalls not only the brutal aspects of the strike but the inspired and heartfelt struggle of the mining communities and the support of the arts world, spearheaded by singer/songwriter Billy Bragg. Contributors include
Bragg, folk singers Roy Bailey , John Tarns and Jez Lowe and the men of the Grimethorpe Colliery Band, who led miners in their eventual walk back to work. Plus interviews with Bernard Ingham (press secretary to then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher ), former senior police officer John Nesbitt - who arrested NUM leader Arthur Scargill at the Battle of Orgreave - and writer Lee Hall , who wove the strike into his story Billy Elliot. Producer Helen Chetwynd

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.
