BBC Radio 4 is set to dramatise the 1984 miners strike battle between Margaret Thatcher and union boss Arthur Scargill. The Duel will reconstruct the backroom dealings, Cabinet meetings, press conferences and rallies of the time. The 60-minute drama will be produced by Jeremy Howe and aired in April as part of a series to mark the 20th anniversary of the miners' strike.
