    (June 17, 1936- )
    Born in Nuneaton, England, United Kingdom
    Directed the TV movies 'Up the Junction' (1965) and 'Cathy Come Home' (1966) and the mini-series 'Days of Hope' (1975)
    Directed the films 'Kes' (1969), 'Looks and Smiles' (1981), 'Hidden Agenda' (1990), 'Riff Raff' (1990), 'Raining Stones' (1993), 'Ladybird, Ladybird' (1994), 'Land and Freedom' (1995), 'Carla's Song' (1996), 'My Name Is Joe' (1998), 'Bread and Roses' (2000), 'Sweet Sixteen' (2002), 'Ae Fond Kiss' (2004) and 'The Wind That Shakes the Barley' (2006)
    The Save the Children Fund commissioned him to make a documentary, but hated the results so much that they tried to have the negative destroyed.
    His TV films 'A Question of Leadership' (1981) and 'Which Side Are You Are On?' (1984) were rejected by the BBC for being 'avowedly partisan.'
    MP Ivan Stanbrook described 'Hidden Agenda' as 'the IRA entry at Cannes.'
    He turned down an OBE, saying, 'It's not a club you want to join when you look at the villains who've got it.'
    'Cathy Come Home' inspired the formation of the homeless charity Shelter.
    His films have won two Special Jury Awards and a Palme d'Or at Cannes.
    He has been married to his wife Lesley for over 40 years.
    When he was accused of hating Britain, he said, 'If I do hate my government, does that mean I hate my country? It's a democratic duty to criticize the government.'
