  • Overview
    It's 1962 and it's a Yorkshire mining village. The community gels on a number of levels, mainly because the men all work down the pit and entrust their lives literally to one another on a daily basis. They work in constant physical danger, have no hiding place as they face one another naked in the shower at the end of the shift and they drink heavily together in comradeship, the language ripe and the jokes mucky.

    And, like nearly all mining communities, they make music: some go for brass bands, some for male voice choirs, but here in the village it's a glee club - five blokes and the church organist in close harmony.
