Mighty Like a Rose
Mary Ryder is a housewife, her once fiery nature ground down by a life of cleaning and cooking for her drunken husband Nigel. A chance meeting with idealistic mineworker Lewis Evans makes her realise what love can be. But Mary made a commitment to Nigel: for better, for worse. When the National Union of Mineworkers calls a strike, Mary doesn't realise it will change her, and the town, forever. A tale of love, friendship and solidarity, set against the backdrop of the 1984-85 Miners' Strike, Mighty Like a Rose follows Mary on her journey from neat detached house to the front line of the UK's longest-running industrial dispute.
