Ken Loach, the critically acclaimed film and television director, best known for his naturalistic, social realist directing style and for his socialist beliefs, began his long career at the BBC where one of his most famous plays, Cathy Come Home, was first broadcast in 1966. A highly emotive story, Cathy Come Home highlighted the housing crisis that is still prevalent in today's society. This beautifully shot film is released on DVD 5th September 2011 from 2entertain.

Cathy Come Home follows the lives of young sweethearts Cathy (Carol White) and Reg (Ray Brooks) starting out as a newly married couple, moving into a new place and having children. Reg then suffers an accident which means he is unable to work and they end up being evicted and separated. With Cathy homeless but still looking after the children, she faces having her children taken away from her by Social Services. This is perhaps the play that has had more impact than any other on television, highlighting the very real problem of homelessness. Even some forty years later the power of Cathy Come Home remains undiminished.
