3/7. An examination of one of the few golden ages for UK film, from the late 1950s and the advent of the social realism genre. It was a movement that propelled the realities of working-class experience onto the big screen and made stars of the likes of Albert Finney, Tom Courtenay and Rita Tushingham in their roles in classics such as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Billy Liar and A Taste of Honey. But the movement also bequeathed a blueprint for representing everyday experience that endures today in films such as Billy Elliot and Trainspotting.
Discussing their involvement in the films that define the genre are stars such as Malcolm McDowell, Ewan McGregor, Jamie Bell and Phil Daniels, and directors Danny Boyle, Ken Loach and Mike Leigh.
The first of a double bill of British films is this bleak drama from Mike Leigh starring Timothy Spall. During a long weekend on a run-down south
London housing estate, world-weary mini-cab driver Phil contemplates why the joy has gone out of his relationship. Film of the Day: page 34.
