Among the most notable features of a modern colliery are the pithead baths with accommodation for all underground and pit-top workers. But while these baths are deservedly popular, there are still certain miners who from lengthy custom prefer to ' take their dirt home ' with them, and to wash in the kitchen or on the ' living room ' hearth before the fire.
In this, the third of the series,
Roger Dataller has chosen as his subject a member of the elder generation who endeavours to maintain the ancient habit inviolated against an overwhelming domestic and social pressure.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
