Writer and producer Tony Garnett presents the key-note speech at With Banners Held High, a day-long event remembering the 1984/85 miners’ strike, held at Unity Works, Wakefield, Saturday 5 March 2016.
‘I want to rehearse some history, history familiar to everyone here, history showing a remarkable similarity between the miners’ battle with the Tory government in 1926 and in 1984. I want to do this as a way to analyse the true role of the BBC. And why that is politically important.’
Tony Garnett is introduced by Ian Clayton.
