Description

A promotion film by Dave Cherry. The Barnsley singer and social historian has written a book called THE WOODHEAD DIARIES and this film is the background behind his novel. The storyline follows a 1952 CID Sergeant who tracks a murder trail from the 1840's when the Pennine railway tunnel was being constructed by Irish navvies. Queen Victoria sets up a Royal Commission to investigate the hundreds of deaths in the tunnel and appoints an Irish Earl to head it. Falling rock and cholera account for many of the high fatalities but skeletons, who have been murdered, are found when the 1952 tunnel is being dug. These date from the original 1840's tunnels. The Earl kept a diary that was so sensitive for the establishment it was locked up in Dublin Castle. The book is on sale on www.amazon.com
