Customer Review

on 2 December 2012
This boxed set contains amazing fictionalised radical working class history that appeared on British tv in teh 60s and 70s.

Days of Hope is a truly remarkable fictionalised document of the years leading from WWI to the general strike of 1926, and its ruthless suppression by the British establishment, and (a regular theme) the betrayal of working people by the union hierarchy.

The Price of Cole has an incredible sequence in which a real mining disaster search and rescue team go through a chillingly quiet and deliberate search-and-rescue for the injured and the dead. It is truly remarkable and memorable realism in this day of hyperbolic, shouty disaster movies.

Cathy Come Home is famous for its impact on British awareness of the subjects of families in distress.

There is excellent writing here by Jim Allen, David Mercer, Nell Dunn etc.

Can we imagine such critical, incisive and radical product getting onto the BBc now?

This Ken Loach at the BBC collection is truly remarkable.
