1/4. Actor Christopher Eccleston explores the bleak, anti-establishment and often angry British films of the late 50s and early 60s that took inspiration from John Osborne 's 1956 "kitchen sink" stage hit Look
Back in Anger. In a period of relaxed censorship, the films tackled sexual, domestic and social issues in a way that changed British cinema (and television) for ever. Contributors include Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey), Dora Bryan , Albert Finney and Shirley-Anne Field (Saturday Night and Sunday Morning), Wendy Craig (The Servant), writer David Storey (This Sporting Life), cinematographer Walter Lassally (A Taste of Honey), composer Richard Rodney Bennett (Billy Liar) and social realist director Ken Loach.
