What were the pressures on journalists who reported the year long miner's strike? Reporters who worked for BBC Radio News (Nicholas Jones), the Yorkshire Evening Post (Peter Lazenby) and The Times (Paul Routledge) reflect on their experiences. This book provides fresh perspective and draws together a range of writers who contribute their different views on media coverage of the strike. Shafted also places the strike in its politica and economic context, and highlights the devastating impact of the pit closure programme on mining communities.
