"Stories from the coalfields of Britain .." - seems to be one installment of a series started in 1948 after nationalisation created National Coal Board and continued monthly until at least 1980. Some eps have their own imdb pages but this one does not, so listed with generic imdb number. This is the only ep on my source DVD set so I'm unlikely to add any others; no sign of any others in our collection so far.

Most of these pictures come from the 3rd feature in the newsreel "A Star Drops In" when Paul Robeson visited a West Lothian pit and sings 'I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night' in its canteen

and then sang a gala concert for Scottish miners in the Usher Hall, Edinburgh in May 49. This continued his UK mining links after starring in a 1940 Welsh mining drama, The Proud Valley.

Miners coaches came to the gala concert from all over Scotland - see entries above - plus these which are probably impossible to ID:

I don't think those buses should be listed with such an extreme closeup...

Shouldn't "[Series 2 Episode 11]" be removed from the title? ;)

2.11 should rather be added to each vehicle, no?

Possibly - I was uncertain how to label it. I'll be surprised if any other episodes emerge here, as my source was a one-off inclusion.
