Now Showing: "Spitting Image"

Here we see Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher conferring with her neighbour 'Herr von Wilcox' who is often found tending the roof garden at Number 9 Downing Street - offering us something of a glimpse into the formation of her policies.

The clip is from 1984, and references the strike by coal miners in 1984-5 which did irreparable damage to the trades union movement in Britain.
