CPBF(North) had planned to show the film ‘Wapping – the Workers’ Story’ last May, but sadly this wasn’t possible, because of Coronavirus restrictions. It’s still something we hope to do in the future though, so look out for updates.
We thought you’d still be interested to know, however, that Ann Field who played a key role in the making of the new film has a chapter on Wapping called ‘Big Media’ in ‘The Strike That Made the Modern Media’.
John Bailey was a print worker strongly associated with the right of reply during the 1984-84 miners’ strike and one of the 6,000 printworkers sacked when Murdoch moved to Wapping. His chapter, ‘From Orgreave to Wapping: the real enemy within’ is in ‘Settling Scores’.
