‘Still the Enemy Within’ is an award-winning documentary that gives a unique insight into one of history’s most dramatic events: the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike.

This is the raw, emotional and ultimately inspiring story of those who lived through Britain’s longest strike.

Featuring never-before-seen archive footage, this documentary follows the true story of the miners on the frontline. With moving and often funny contributions from miners wives and supporters including the real life story behind hit film ‘Pride’ this is a chronicle both of personal drama and of events that shaped the world today. Accompanied by a soulful, timely soundtrack, ‘Still the Enemy Within’ challenges us to look again at our past so that in the words of one miner, “we can still seek to do something about the future”.
