When first televised by the BBC, Cathy Come Home caused a tremendous uproar, provoked a special Cabinet meeting, and, most importantly, stopped the authorities from separating thousands of husbands from their families. Based on facts and situations observed by the author, Cathy Come Home is a dramatised documentary telling the story of one young woman's struggle to attain a home for her family - and her ultimate failure. Cathy's name subsequently became a symbol for Britain's homeless.
Now regarded as a milestone in broadcasting history, this edition of Sandford's illustrated screenplay comes with a new introduction by Derek Paget, Visiting Fellow in the Department of Film, Theatre and Television at the University of Reading. It details the screenplay's significance both as groundbreaking television drama and as unflinching social commentary.
