Interesting that these programmes are only made and shown long after it can have any reprecussions. Popular TV (such as the drama "Dockers") only picked up on the Liverpool Dock's strike, long after it was defeated. Sympathetic portrayals of the Miners' and documentaries uncovering state involvement in the para-military policing during the Miners' Strike occur long after the labour movement has been dismantled. This is no criticism of the dramatists and actors, they don't decide who or what is shown.

It is a classic example of liberal, pluralism. Criticisms of the repressive, market state is allowed but only if it has no impact. What better way for the dominant groups in society to show their tolerance of dissent?
