Reviews:

“I can’t express enough my admiration for Owen Gower’s remarkable film. It moved and inspired me. Everyone – not only in Britain – should see this superb film.”

John Pilger, Journalist

“The mainstream media didn’t tell the truth about the miners’ strike when it happened. And the same lies are still being told. It’s important that we tell this story.”

Ken Loach, Film Director

“The documentary Still the Enemy Within is an amazing film, an emotional, harrowing critique of those who run the UK. See it!”

Irvine Welsh, Author

“Still The Enemy Within is inspiring, uplifting, moving and sad. It is also important, telling as it does the story of a key conflict in British History.”

Ben Elton, Writer & Comedian
