I recall seeing part of this film in the visitors center at Rother Valley, that was shortly after it opened.

Thanks for the link.

Did you take a look at the other three films about the opencast, posted by the same person on YouTube?

Thank you very much for sharing - very interesting indeed.

Of course, it did not all go strictly according to plan!

The workings flooded quite badly in 1977, and as you can see from the attached image, the coal authority were caught a little unawares.
