Stories we tell ourselves - The Cultural Impact of UK Film 1946–2006

Taking 200 iconic films made over the last 60 years it traces how British cinema has both upheld certain traditional British values and mocked, challenged and undermined them. It shows how important film has been in sustaining and developing the identity of the UK’s nations and regions, and in reflecting the changing face of Britain’s different communities. And it charts the extraordinary power a successful British film can wield at home and abroad. In 1960, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning fundamentally and rapidly changed perceptions of class and regional identity in England. In 2002, Bend it like Beckham was the catalyst that launched all-women football in India.
