Synopsis:
Ken Loach, one of the most admired and respected UK filmmakers of his generation, began directing for the BBC in 1964. In his contributions to the BBC series 'The Wednesday Play' from 1965-69 - among them 'Up the Junction' and 'Cathy Come Home' - he would establish his reputation for making realistic social issue dramas. After feature film success in the late sixties, Ken Loach returned to television, directing the acclaimed series 'Days of Hope' (1975) and the two-parter 'The Price of Coal' (1977). In his films, Loach pushed the boundaries of television drama.
He took filming out of the studio and introduced a documentary-style approach and, alongside producer Tony Garnett and writers such as David Mercer, Jim Allen, Jeremy Sandford, Nell Dunn and Barry Hines, he tackled controversial subjects from an often incendiary radical perspective.
