Brian, Michael and Denise Gregory, Cuba Street, Easington Colliery, Co. Durham. December 1984.
With most national newspapers hostile to the strike and invariably distorting the facts, television news was the main and most reliable source of information for miners and their families. Later it came to light that even the BBC had reversed footage of Orgreave to portray the miners as the aggressors against the police.
