Top tenor, Paul Traherne of The Aber Valley Male Voice choir remembers the miners' strike of '84-'85 when he was a colliery offical and member of NACODS. Paul tells us how his father and four brothers all worked in the colliery - some were supervisors others NUM members. "My father's greatest worry was that there would be brother against brother or father against son and that we would all fall out because of the dispute".
Paul is joined by his daughter, Catherine, who was very young at the time of the strike. She remembers something big was happening because her mum would say "Quick, come and watch the news, you might see your dad on there."
