Since the beginning of cinema, Britain has produced some of the world’s finest film directors. Join us as we explore the diversity of British filmmaking through the careers of six of its best directors – from the well-known to the underrated.
We’ve selected six directors whose body of work will, we feel, stand the test of time. We’ll look at how they developed, their themes and their passions. And, of course, their films, both well and lesser known.
Week 1: Lynne Ramsay (Ratcatcher; You Were Never Really Here)
Week 2: Ken Loach (Cathy Come Home; I, Daniel Blake)
Week 3: Sally Potter (Orlando; The Party)
Week 4: Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire)
Week 5: Steve McQueen (Shame, 12 Years a Slave)
Week 6: Muriel Box (Eyewitness; The Truth About Women)
