Still The Enemy Within is a brand new Award-Winning documentary that gives a unique insight into one of history’s most dramatic events: the 1984-85 British Miners’ Strike. No experts. No politicians. Thirty years on, this is the raw emotional story of those who drove Britain’s longest strike.

The film weaves stunningly edited archive footage of the strike and never-before-seen interviews with the real key players of the strike: the miners themselves. Accompanied by a soulful, timely soundtrack, Still The Enemy Within brought audiences to tears with a two-minute standing ovation at the Sheffield Documentary Festival, where it won the festival’s prestigious Audience Award.

Still The Enemy Within is ultimately a universal tale of ordinary people standing up for what they believe in. It challenges us to look again at our past so that in the words of one miner, “we can still seek to do something about the future”.
