Ken Loach's new film The Spirit of '45 opens this weekend. The film combines archive footage and interviews to explore the creation and development of social welfare institutions by the Labour Government after the Second World War. It has a strong historical feel, but also ties in with current policy debates on cuts, the privatisation of healthcare and threats to the NHS.
The nearest screening to Weston super Mare is at the Watershed in Bristol - times of screenings are here: http://www.watershed.co.uk/whatson/4095/the-spirit-of-45/
