Riches Beneath The Earth: When Fred was a lad coal was king and Britain still had a flourishing mining industry. Mining and all the engineering that was involved always fascinated Fred - not just coal, but lead, tin, iron ore and all the riches from beneath the earth that provided the raw materials for our industrial society. Filmed on location at Big Pit National Mining Museum, Geevor Tin Mine, Llechwedd Slate Caverns, National Coal Mining Museum, North of England Lead Mining Museum, Scottish Mining Museum, Welsh Slate Museum and Wet Earth Colliery, Fred gives us his own unique and highly personal history of mining in Britain.
Iron And Steel: From Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire, often described as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution, to a modern forge in Sheffield, Fred takes us around the country to tell us about the history of iron and steel making and to have a look at some of the processes. Share Fred¿s excitement and watch the sparks fly with him as he visits Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Independent Forgings and Kelham Island Museum in Sheffield, Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, Finch Foundry in Devon, Ironbridge Gorge Museums and Workington Steel Works.
