A stirring film about miners taking on their bosses in a historic strike will be shown at the National Coal Mining Museum tonight.

The Happy Lands, a story about Scottish mine workers involved in the General Strike of 1926, will be shown at the Overton museum at 7pm.

The Theatre Workshop Scotland production will be followed by a cast and crew question and answer session.

The drama was inspired by true stories from families in Fife who campaigned against austerity cuts from a Liberal-Conservative government.

Tickets costs £7. Concession tickets for OAPS, students and the unemployed are £5.
