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.
