Public Service spot from the UK, 1975.
Back when coal mining was glamorous, I guess.

GOP is dusting this off to recruit millennials to , I guess.

    Sadly and ironically coal mining was a respectable way the working classes could make a reasonable living back then. The irony is that less than ten years later the neoliberal reformist conservative government, under Maggie, were at tota; war with the miners, and their ideas for the good life. It’s been downhill ever since. What happened to the good old days of the 70’s I wonder ?

    Look if you found this because you were listening to Public Service Broadcasting and that video popped up on youtube you have to post that too! If not that’s fine too.

    Here’s another one from this year—they’re still trying to make coal mining “glamorous”, although with a bit more subtlety.
