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. George fights his own battles and an election. Connie mourns, loves and unites as Liz sees a new world, brim-full of opportunity. In a new Britain, will their hopes and dreams be reconciled?

Based on extensive research and true stories, On Behalf of the People was originally commissioned by the National Coal Mining Museum for England and reveal how millions pf people in mining communities were affected by the end of the war, coal nationalisation and the huge period of social change which impacted on their lives, love, hopes and dreams.

Directed by Charlie Kenber
