THE FILM The Navigators by socialist film director Ken Loach has just been released on video. It was written by a former rail worker, and exposes the impact of privatisation on the lives of rail workers. Some workers take a gamble by opting for redundancy money and life as casual workers.

Others try to hang on to their jobs as health and safety is sacrificed in the drive for profit on the railways. The film mixes humour with drama to show how privatisation devastated the rail industry and workers’ lives.

The Navigators is available in shops for £12.99
