3/4. Actor Christopher Eccleston explores the anti-Establishment, bleak 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 broke new ground in their depictions of sexual, domestic and social issues.
Contributors include Rita Tushingham , Dora Bryan , Albert Finney and Shirley-Anne Field, Wendy Craig , writer David Storey , cinematographer Walter Lassally , composer Richard Rodney Bennett and social realist director Ken Loach.

Actor Sean Penn reads an abridged version of Bob Dylan 's autobiography, published in 2004. 6/8. Dylan has a motor-bike accident and his wife gives birth.
And in a radical change of image and direction he shies away from his public persona as the conscience of America, taking up painting and recording an album based on Chekhov short stories.
