A reconstruction of coal miners arriving at work to be told that the pit has lost an order and is closed. The commentary explains the reasons why the Welsh coal industry suffered in 1927 and how school children were also given the same news.

Students could explore whether the decline of the industry would bring the community closer together or tear them apart. Their findings could then be presented as a newspaper article detailing the decline and its effect on the community.
