In Two Minds
Ken Loach, 1967



Director: Ken Loach
Writer: David Mercer
Film Editor: Roy Watts
Camera: Tony Imi
Producer: Tony Garnett
Production Company: BBC
Country & Year: UK, 1967
Runtime: 73 min
Language: English

Cast: Anna Cropper; George A. Cooper; Helen Booth; Christine Hargreaves; Adrienne Frame; Peter Ellis.

Kate, a young girl under psychiatric examination, suffers from a lack of confidence, self-esteem and self-control. She tells her doctor about the "bad Kate" who commits immoral acts. Could the hypocrisy, selfishness and weakness of those around her have led to this state of mind or can Kate simply be diagnosed and dismissed as schizophrenic?

In a drama told in Loach's convincing documentary style, writer David Mercer questioned the accepted condition of schizophrenia. Fellow dramatist Dennis Potter pointed out that the play "completely supported the arguments and theories of R.D. Laing, who believes that schizophrenia is more a particular style of communication than an organic disease of the brain". The film, broadcast in The Wednesday Play series, led to heated discussions on television and in the press, while Mercer won the Writers' Guild Award for the Best Television Play on 1967.

Today Ken Loach is an internationally feted filmmaker. But he was also once a prophet in his own country. Working with a generation of radicals, he excelled at what became known as the drama-documentary - a TV genre that was socially engaged, aesthetically experimental and politically influential. It made working class people the subject of public service broadcasting. This essential collection has many of the key works which now deserve the widest rescreening for their enduring relevance and artistic courage. [socialistreview.org.uk]
