Some technical issues are stopping us from posting and updating properly today, so we thought we’d share this message from ‘The Spirit of 45’, a new film by Ken Loach that premiered on Film Four last night, reminding us what is possible.
An impassioned documentary about how the spirit of unity which buoyed Britain during the war years carried through to create a vision of a fairer, united society.
“The achievements of the ’45 Labour government have largely been written out of our history. From near economic collapse we took leading industries into public ownership and established the Welfare State. Generosity, mutual support and co-operation were the watch words of the age. It is time to remember the determination of those who were intent on building a better world.”
