Sculptor Sean Hedges Quinn has done it with his statue of Bob Stokoe. It's real hair on the back of the neck stuff.
A blueprint by the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Spectre Clean Coal Task Force has demonstrated the possibilities of low carbon emission, greener power stations. There is hope, it appears. And while thousands still march in the Durham Miners' Gala, with the hope goes the will.
all a bit grubby, mining. And that's the crux of this.
For most, the supping is the same wherever you turn up, from Portsmouth to Pennywell.
The market is still there. In Britain last year, we burned 57million tonnes of coal, 36million tonnes of which was imported, most of it from Eastern Europe.
With just six deep mines operating in Britain the last North East one shutting more than 18 months ago coal in Britain is entering the pages of history.

We might be sitting on 300 years of coal reserves, but our Labour masters have now finished the job Margaret Thatcher and her henchmen started in the 1980s.
are still thousands of skilled miners out there. Dumped, far too early, when their skills were sacrificed and communities abandoned, for what?
It's not players writhing in mock agony, bling bling weddings, coke snorting WAGs, badge kissers, shares or transfer bungs.
Double Maxim and Samson, in their own little way, are keeping a small corner of this world free for a drop of history.
The Government's long awaited energy review has conferred the last rites on this industry.
Sounds like another one of Tony's talking shops to me even if there is the slim chance of regenerating an industry bound in our blood.
That still means something to some of us in this town.
The review has proved a boon for the nuclear power industry. North Sea gas is running out, yet coal merits barely a footnote in New Labour's plans for the future.
The National Union Of Mineworkers has dwindled from its pomp in the North East to fewer than 3,000 members nationwide.
