Stories of Coal Film Now Online

Over the past three years, pupils of Pontypridd High School have been working on a Heritage Lottery funded animation project about coal mining in the South Wales Valleys.

We are pleased to say that we've finally completed it, and the outcome is a 46 minute documentary comprised of hand-drawn animations and interview footage of miners and historians. 

Credit goes to the pupils who have stuck with the project since September 2016 and have given up two to three nights a week since then to design, develop and create the film. It is entirely their own work, and we couldn't be more proud of them. 

You can watch the full version of the film by clicking on the Youtube video below. If you have any enquiries in regards to the film, please contact Mr Husband via e-mail using
