The Miners Videotape Project

During the Miners strike of 1984-85, faced with unrelenting hostility from the government and much of the media, the National Union of Mineworkers and members of the Association of Cinematograph, Television and Allied Technicians (ACTT) and some other sympathisers started the Miners Videotape Project, to document the strike and raise awareness of events on the picket lines and in the mining communities.

Here is a link below to the videos made by the NUM to counteract the government narrative of the strike. They contain many interviews from rank and file members and supporters from around the UK.
