Ken Loach, who has been making socially aware dramas and documentaries for over 50 years, reflects on his often controversial career, with comments from colleagues, friends and family. Successes like Cathy Come Home, Kes and Palm d'Or winning The Wind that Shakes the Barley are matched by tales of projects shelved or pilloried, a stage play cancelled during rehearsals, and a personal tragedy.

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.
Contains: The Big Flame, Three Clear Sundays, Days of Hope, The End of Arthur’s Marriage, In Two Minds, Up the Junction, The Price of Coal, Cathy Come Home and The Rank and File.

Socialist-leaning British director Ken Loach kicked off a decade's worth of acclaimed cinema with this surprisingly comic tale of working class laborers at a North London building site, written by Bill Jesse, a real-life construction worker who died before the film's release. Scottish ex-con Stevie (Robert Carlyle) finds work on a non-union crew converting a hospital into luxury condos. Like most of his coworkers, Stevie is homeless and finds a place to live by squatting in an abandoned building.

However, the lovers have very different ideas about how to deal with the problems Glaswegian life throws at them, and when Joe is forced to do some drug running to pay off a debt, their tentative relationship is in danger of spluttering to a halt.
A typically fresh and enlightening Loach comedy of misbehaviour in which the humour never risks undermining the serious social commentary, My Name Is Joe's uncompromising conclusion demonstrates that Loach is nowhere near to selling out on his ideals.

Sandford's passionate tale of one family's relentless fall into poverty and homelessness - directed by Loach with characteristic vigour - was a watershed in British TV drama. Only a few moments in television's history can match the emotional charge of Cathy Come Home's heartrending climax, in which Social Services officials separate a hysterical Cathy from her children. Hugely influential in its day - its broadcast gave a major boost to the launch of the homelessness charity Shelter a few days later.

Angie, played by newcomer Kierston Wareing, is a 33 year-old wrangler of day laborers for the London work force. When the film opens she's hungry and ambitious, expecting not to spend her life standing on the docks forever, but with a little luck to actually start her own firm and make some real money, connecting eager young Eastern European workers to part-time employers in the U.K. However, she soon learns that the real money is not in the ones with all of their papers in order, but the ones with no papers whatsoever.
