On Behalf of The People

1945: a land fit for heroes - this time?
A powerful and engaging story of a post-war Yorkshire mining family, coming to terms with their rapidly changing world and a new Britain; told with warmth, humour and authenticity.
Tom Mason returns from the war to the arms of his grateful mother and fiancée – and to the bosom of the pit. His father George fights his own battles and an election to secure a better future for his union men and their families. Connie mourns, loves and unites while Liz sees a new world, brim-full of opportunity. Based on true stories and research, it was originally commissioned by National Coal Mining Museum for England.
