A reconstruction of coal miners at work in 1927 showing the men working under ground and the working conditions down the pit. The commentary provides information on the dangers of work in the south Wales coalfield at the time and consequential fatalities.

Learners could explore the conditions and the jobs done under ground and look at the dangers that the coal miners faced. A discussion could follow about why mining was such a dangerous job, drawing comparisons with the Chilean mining accident of 2010 and the Gleision Colliery mining accident of 2011.
