Miners' Day 2017 is on Wednesday, December 6, 2017: Whats a fathers day song?
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 is Miners' Day 2017. National Miner's Day - December 6 Miner's Day Banner
Mining is really a hazardous but vital profession. Miners have the effect of supplying industry with lots of the recycleables that people depend upon in modern manufacturing, but achieve this at great peril deep subterranean. Miners’ Day recognises hard and harmful work carried out by miners and rewards their dedication.

whats it like to be a 'miner' as a job?
Deep feelings and isolation is the only bit you got wrong.
It was hard work and demanding work. Men worked extremely long shifts, underground, inhaling soot, dust and even fine coal, that made permanent damage to their lungs. These days in my village I can tell who are the men that worked down the mines because they have a particular cough. Some still cough up black phlegm.
It was also dangerous, because every now and again there would be an accident. We saw only a few months ago (in my valley) how tragic mining accidents can be. A wall broke and water came flooding in and 4 miners lost their lives. It was well-known locally that the mountain was full of water and unsuitable for mining, but the pit owners (as was common back in the day) ignored safety warnings.
It was dark, dangerous and a generally horrible job, but there was a great camaraderie amongst miners. They would spend pretty much all day together. They'd wake up early, go down the pit together, work all day, come up, shower together, go home for dinner with their families, then meet up again at the pub for a few drinks, and go to bed around 11pm. It was the same thing every day.
The spirit amongst miners was outstanding. They used to play rugby together, sing in choirs together and of course, drink together. They had an extremely close bond that was a beautiful sight. A bit like those that go into the armed services, but without killing other people.
Miners today always tell me about the close friendship felt by people down the mines and how everybody knew each other, and everybody got on well and treated each other like family. They generally hated the work but enjoyed their lives.
does anyone know the name of this film?
