Screening of Cathy Come Home (1966, Ken Loach)

Northumbria University


Screening of Cathy Come Home (1966, Directed by Ken Loach)

Watched by 12 million people in 1966, Cathy Come Home is possibly the most influential docu-drama ever shown in the UK. By demonstrating the shameful treatment of Cathy, her husband Reg and her children, it did much to change the perception that homeless people had only themselves to blame for their situation.

The film will be introduced by Dr Jamie Harding, Senior Lecturer in Research Methods, Northumbria University.

This event is free to attend and booking is not required.
