Cathy Come Home + Crisis debate

Ken Loach introduces a screening of his 1966 TV drama Cathy Come Home. The director explains that the film has a long history of being used as a starting point for debates about the issue of homelessness, and describes the furore that surrounded its original broadcast.

After the screening, Loach is joined by Crisis Director Duncan Shrubsole to discuss whether we are any closer to ending homelessness in the years since the film was made.
