    I'm looking for the title of a British b&w film about a mine collapse and the rescue of the miners by a pit pony that subsequently dies while saving them.

    Thanks........Mel.

    Escape from the Dark (1976), I think:

    Escape from the Dark (1976) - IMDb

    Yes, I'd thought of that one, but it was in colour. The one I'm looking for was earlier, I think, and in black&white.

    Most on-screen mining disasters end rather badly though I don't remember any b/w pit ponies (except the one Michael Redgrave draws on the blackboard in The Stars Look Down). Any of these ring a bell?

    Well The Proud Valley and The Brave Don't Cry are both B&W mining disaster films but IIRC neither of them feature pit ponies in the rescue.
