In an attempt to remedy this Brian Langtry has released this film to
recognise this violent and traumatic part of Leicestershire`s history.
This is a collection of new, self penned, songs. The songs are in the
folksy/country style and cover a large variety of topics related to the
people and places of the County. There are 14 songs on the CD and
Brian`s playing and singing is augmented by several guest singers and
musicians. For these contributions Brian is greatly indebted.
The CD is priced at £6 + £1 p&p from Legless Productions Ltd. Contact
THE DIRTY THIRTY
This film, by Brian Langtry and
Len Holden, is the compelling

The name “Dirty Thirty” was given to them by former colleagues who saw
their rejection of the UDM stance as an act of betrayal. The 30 braved
isolation,stigmatisation,verbal and physical abuse whilst they remained
on strike for the duration of the dispute. This sacrifice has largely been
forgotten when the history of The Miners Strike concentrates mostly on
