A look at Britain and the lives of its people through the eyes of a range of film makers.

Among the films we will look at are Terence Davies’ Of Time and the City, Humphrey Jennings’ A Diary for Timothy, Robert Flaherty’s Industrial Britain, Watt & Wright’s Night Mail, Michael Powell’s A Canterbury Tale, Roy Boulting’s Brighton Rock, Tony Richardson’s A Taste of Honey, Ken Loach’s Kes, Shane Meadow’s This is England and the work of the Free Cinema movement.
