The Spirit of ‘45
Director: Ken Loach
Starring: Ray Davies, Dr. Julian Tudor-Hart, Tony Benn
UK, 2013, 1 hour 38 minutes
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother’s and our sister’s keeper. Loach has created a rich political and social narrative using archive film of the period and contemporary interviews with those who remember those times, such as ex-Miner Ray Davies from Caerphilly and pioneering Valleys GP, Dr. Julian Tudor-Hart. This celebrates a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and whose towering achievements such as the NHS are again under threat today.
This is a special one off nationwide satellite screening event that will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion with director, Ken Loach.
Panellists joining Ken will include comedian Jeremy Hardy as host, Owens Jones (writer and author of Chavs) and Dot Gibson, General Secretary of the National Pensioners Convention.
