:o Hi, everyone I need your help I must apologize for asking a question not about the usual things but it's something thats bothering me, in the 1970s there was a film on TV I think it was Yorkshire Television it was taken at a mining Pit were Prince Charles was visiting the Pit they had cleaned all the land round the buildings and all the roads and spacers and they painted an area for the helicopter to land, on the day all the miners and the bosses were all lined up in suits, white shirts, and black ties, to recieve the Prince as the helicopter started to desend the down drought from the roters blow the dust all over the men waiting, as the Prince walked up to them the site that greeted him was really laughable some of them wore wigs these had blown off and all there faces were black, does anyone know what the film was called. :o

Never heard of that one. Sounds like one of those urban myths - unless it was a spoof?

How enterprising of you I wouldn't have thought of Ted Robbins but he's an all-round good bloke.
