From BAFTA Award-winning director Ken Loach comes THE SPIRIT OF '45. Featuring an additional disc with over seven hours of extras including: 22 extended interviews with all contributors to the film; interview with Ken Loach; Ken Loach short film: WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON; and much more. This is an essential release for all fans of Ken Loach and an overdue tribute to the men and women who created a new state where the character of the times was to be our brother's and our sister's keeper.

1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother's and our sister's keeper. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain's regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews to create a rich political and social narrative.

THE SPIRIT OF '45 hopes to illuminate and celebrate a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today.

- Interview with Ken Loach
- Ken Loach short film: WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?
- 22 Extended interviews with all contributors to the film
