Did anyone on here listen to this BBC radio play?
Never really thought about it
Any good? or Any God?
It were canny. Not life changing but it brought back a few memories. It was about Easington and the strike as much as Ferryhill.
If I could open that I'm sure I would find it would be very amusing. But as I can't, maybe I don't exist after all.
I'm from Ferryhill many moons ago so I started to listen to it out of parochial interest. Got bored and switched off after about 15 minutes.
Was that the first episode mate?
Did the FCF feature in it in their battles with Chilton Trojans and Spennymoor New Breed?!
Yorkshire lad? Ferryhill not Ferrybridge!
Aye probably. Nothing against it but it's not my thing. The writer is the son of Sid Chaplin who my father and grandfather knew reasonably well.
It was on a few years ago, have they repeated it?
Tin hat on but I find most of the stuff done about our history is a bit twee and condescending.
The one thing I enjoyed was a programme about the miners who had a painting club.
Up to Series 3 now - not sure how recent it is though. I'm downloading the first one.
Whats it all about like?
Yes and yes.
That's the gist of it
Separate names with a comma.
