Many thanks to Mia, Jess and Cain along with Craig Husband who is one of the Arts teachers at Pontypridd High School along with Darren Macey from the University of South Wales for coming in to chat about their project and their new animated documentary which explores the coal mining heritage of the South Wales Valleys, taking account of those who have studied it, and those who lived through it. The documentary was hand drawn by students in Pontypridd High School.
