The script of The Garden of England has been condensed from
nearly fifty hours of taped interviews recorded in the Kent coalfield in September/October
1984 and in May 1985. These interviews were solely with striking miners and
their families, and therefore represent the point of view of only one group
of people. The editing of this large mass of material was done so as to reflect
the topics raised by those interviewed.
Length: about 2 hours 20 minutes, including a 15-minute interval
