The coal mine in a northern English village may be closing, which would also mean the end of the miners' brass band.
A portion of Pete Postlethwaite's speech at the end of the film was sampled by the British group, Chumbawamba, for the beginning of their 1997 hit "Tubthumping."
This isn't your main job, is it?
Phil: I'm a miner.
Mother 2: A miner?
Phil: You remember them, love? Dinosaurs, dodos, miners.
The beginning of the closing credits is headed by the silouhette of a trumpet.
The American release removes the scene where Phil explains that he was a scab (voted for pit closure).
