THE BLACKSTUFF BOYS
By Noel Griffiths, Cliff Williams and Bert Abraham
Three ex-miners from the same valley in South Wales, but with very different experiences of the strike. Noel was a member of NACODS and a colliery official, he had to cross the picket lines which was one of the worst years of his life.

Cliff was the Chairman of the strike committee for South Wales and feels that although terrible things happened during the strike, he has no regrets as they were fighting for their livelihoods and the future of their communities. Bert was an NUM representative and helped to organise the strike effort.
