Hope this is not too tenuous a link to WW1?

14/4/1955 Visite à une mine de charbon : fosse 12 des Houillères de Lens (13 min 32 sec)

Google Translate

" This report shows Pierre TCHERNIA visiting a coal mine. He punctuated the live broadcast of the program "Visiting" from Pit 12 (Twelve) Houillères Lens (Pas-de-Calais) with Loos en Gohelle. Two cameras were installed 300 meters underground to show the work of miners, for the first time in Europe.Pierre TCHERNIA dressed miner, interviewed Mr. Destruis (?), Head of the mine, its functioning. They descend into a "beurtiat" (internal shaft) via a lift, then visit a stope. They meet one of the last horses of mine used to tow sedans, and interact with the driver. We are witnessing an explosion prepared by the "blaster", and debris removal, and finally the movement of coal sedans. TCHERNIA Pierre and his host then go to the extraction sedan, through the galleries. "
