Murder Inspired Story

The story is based on Nottinghamshire Mining community where the Killings of Keith Frogson and Chanel Taylor was picturized. In 2004, Frogson , a key member of NUM, was brutally killed by miner Robert Boyer.

Boyer hid in the Sherwood Forest, and two weeks later he returned to Frogson’s house, where his daughter and son-in-law were, set on fire. However, the couple remained unharmed.


The second murder took place at the same time and the murderer, another miner Terry Rogers was also hiding in Sherwood Forest.  Rogers shot and killed his daughter Chanel Taylor, who was walking down the aisle just a few weeks ago.

The manhunt was the largest in British history. Rogers escaped the police for 17 days before being found in the woods, but Boyer was arrested shortly thereafter.

Turning Point

Boyer was found guilty and was sent to jail but due to detreating mental health was referred to a mental hospital. He had misunderstood Forgson as a senior member of NUM and was imagining a completely different idea of what Frogson had to play during the strike.  ”


Of course, beyond the legacy of spy police officers across Britain, the story gained additional relevance due to recent strike actions by national railroad staff.

The confession in Episode 4 by a lawyer and National Union of Mineworkers activist Jennifer Hale (played by Lindsey Duncan), referring to the government’s crackdown on coal mineworker strikes in the 1980s, leaves a lasting impression.

They wanted to change the political situation in this country from collectivism to deregulation of market power. Reasonable people may or may not agree with this change. The important thing is that they needed a war to get it. “
