Ken Loach was born in 1936 in Nuneaton. He attended King Edward VI Grammar School and went on to study law at St. Peter's Hall, Oxford. After a brief spell in the theatre, Loach was recruited by the BBC in 1963 as a trainee television director.
This launched a long career directing films and documentaries for television and the cinema, from ‘Cathy Come Home' and ‘Kes' in the sixties to ‘Land and Freedom', ‘Sweet Sixteen' and ‘The Wind That Shakes The Barley' in recent years.
“What Doorway does is hugely important and it's clear from the people who use the service just what an impact it has had on their lives.”
“The work Doorway does is fantastic but we shouldn't have to pass the hat around. We shouldn't need organisations like Doorway. What we should have is leadership and the will to make the changes.”
