Perhaps the most famous of the Garnett/Loach collaborations: social realism before the term docudrama had been invented. Carol White plays a woman who loses her home, children and husband (Ray Brooks) thanks to the pitiless not-so-welfare state. The realistic portrayal of society's underbelly, scripted by Jeremy Sandford, helped to give rise to the charity Shelter , and touched the consciences of a generation.
