Episode 4 of 4

Justin Edwards, Mel Giedroyc and Dave Mounfield - along with special guest Vicki Pepperdine - visit the mining heartlands to tell the story of talc through the ages.

Justin Edwards, Mel Giedroyc and Dave Mounfield are in the mining town of Grissock to tell the story of talc through the ages, using songs, sketches and powerful verbatim theatre.

Justin has actually done some research for this week's play, interviewing some miners in the social club and writing down what they said to him. Sadly ,not all of it was relevant. The band go on strike and special guest Vicki Pepperdine launches a coup.
