The BFI Rueben Library is making the personal archive of film director Ken Loach accessible to the public. The first part of the archive will be available next week, with the remainder released in stages, once it is documented and cataloged.

The archive includes scripts, notes, call sheets and research materials, and covers Loach’s early career working on BBC dramas, such as Z Cars, The Wednesday Play and the documentary The Rank and File, and the films Poor Cow (1967), Black Jack, and Looks and Smiles (1981).
