STILL the Enemy Within is 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 first-hand experience of
those who lived through Britain’s longest strike. Follow the highs and
lows of that life-changing year.

Using interviews and a wealth of rare and never before seen archive, the
film draws together personal experiences – whether they’re tragic, funny
or terrifying – to take the audience on an emotionally powerful journey
through the dramatic events of that year.

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”.
