This is the story of a city built on coal. Australia’s Newcastle, like its British counterpart, developed into a large city that still retains its essential mining atmosphere. The great steel industry “which feeds on its black gold” is shown in full blast. But Story of a City reaches beyond coal, steel and the activities of a great port and into the lives of the people of Newcastle. It explores not only the mines and the mills but moves into the dwellings and working places and out into the stunning natural surroundings where they spend their leisure time.. 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia..
