Trivia
Being an anti-trades union film, this was initially banned in Wales where the cinema chains were controlled by the miners' unions. It was only when Richard Attenborough personally intervened and screened it for the union leaders that the ban was revoked.

The prominent headline '66,000 fans see Chelsea and sigh' on the back of the newspapers held by Alfred Burke and Michael Craig refers to a match that took place on 2 September 1959 at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Manchester United. Richard Attenborough is a lifelong Chelsea fan and Life Vice-President of the club. The inclusion of the report of the 6-3 loss suffered by his team is likely to have been a joke at his expense.
