JEremy Clancy - who's that?
Born in Bolsover father and grandfather (in fact everyone in my family 1720’s) were miners. Father moved to Ruskin – first man to break the cycle. Adult education –
Not interested in politics until the miners strike – the fights – the fact that my home town was filled with police men with London accents – the huge stockpiled coal reserves in the smokeless fuel yard – giving out food parcels with my mum to my friends mums. After all this I would like to say that I saw the light – I saw that there was a light – that the defeat of the miners meant that that light was gone out.
I was given a grant from the NUM to make a film about Arkwright town –
I wasn’t turned on – so much as very much aware of the defeat – bit cynical – growing up in Thatchers Britain – only way to deal with my own mental health issues – meditation –
