Rare documentaries, big studio features and independently produced films bring alive the stories of the communities shaped by their steelworks, and offer a richly fascinating and often surprising view of a largely vanished way of life.

For millions of people this isn’t just Britain’s ‘industrial heritage’, it’s their family history.

Steel is the final strand of This Working Life, a three-part BFI project comprising King Coal (September 2009) and Tales from the Shipyard (February 2011).

This Working Life: Steel is supported by The British Council, Community Union and The Erik Anker-Petersen Charity. The media partner is New Statesman.
