This show is about a young boy growing up in a mining community in the North East of England during the early 1980s when the Conservative Government under the frighteningly determined Prime Minister - Margaret Thatcher - decided to take on the powerful miners' union, and won. What happened in that period not only changed the UK political climate forever, but also changed the world.

Thatcher's ideas - harsh medicine to cure deep-rooted ills, unbending political strategies, taking on powerful groups, controlling inflation with high unemployment, selling off state-owned assets, all combined with the concept that there is 'no such thing as society' - were more revolutionary than even Marx and Engels could possibly have dreamed of. And what's more, those ideas were eagerly taken up and honed by other Governments right around the globe.

That's the background, now back to the plot Billy's father and brother are miners who are called-out on strike. The harsh reality of a family already living on the edge is thus intensified. The family - at least Billy and his father - still grieve for Billy's mother, and his grandmother needs constant attention because of apparent dementia.
