  Triona Holden 25 August 2005  
The ex BBC news reporter talks about her new book

As a BBC reporter, Triona Holden covered the full range of moving news stories, but none of these events nagged at her as much as the miners strike of 1984 to 5, and the women involved with it.

Now she's written a book about their lives called "Queen Coal". She joins Jenni to tell her more.
Queen Coal: Women of the Miners' Strike by Triona Holden, published by Sutton Publishing - ISBN: 0750939710
