A reconstruction showing coal miners working under ground in 1927. Miners had to do difficult and dangerous jobs and endure cramped conditions for long hours. The commentary explains miners' low life expectancy and the prevalence of mining related illnesses at the time.
This clip could act as a stimulus for discussion on the possible reasons for miners’ low life expectancy, looking at the dangers and illnesses the men experienced. They could then create a newspaper article documenting an accident in the mine which outlines the causes and possible blame for the accident.
