The World’s Sexiest Job? Coal Miner, According to This Hilarious 1975 Propaganda Film

The '70's were simpler times

President Trump says he wants to “bring back coal” — to do so, he should look to Britain’s cinematic past.

The nostalgia site Flashbak recently “unearthed” (see what I did there?) a 1975 recruitment video from Britain’s National Coal Board that seemed to promise potential coal miners a lifetime of beautiful women, ski vacations and cocktails.

And guns. And short shorts for playing squash.

It’s hilarious in hindsight, yes, but apparently the NCB had a quite a prolific and respected film unit for nearly forty years.
