Vanessa Redgrave, Michael Hordern, Barbara Windsor and James Fox star in this epic story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, the 19th century labourers seen as founders of modern-day trade unionism. Directed by Bill Douglas.
The epic story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, six Dorset labourers deported to Australia in the 1830s for forming a trade union.
This is a compelling account of struggle and injustice, unfolding in the pastoral haze of Dorset and blinding light of Australia, beautifully presented in a new high-definition film restoration.
