The legendary filmmaker talks about his latest film 'I, Daniel Blake' and why he believes Jeremy Corbyn could one day lead the country.
Ken Loach is one of Britain's greatest filmmakers over the past 50 years, gaining a reputation for tackling tough social issues. His latest film, 'I, Daniel Blake' tells the story of a 59-year-old carpenter who suffers a heart attack but is forced back into work by an uncaring, bureaucratic, benefits system.
Iain Dale spoke to him about what he found while making a film about the benefits system and the people caught in it, the representation of the poor in the media, his support of Lily Allen's comments on Calais and why Jeremy Corbyn could lead the country one day.
