The Navigators Film Poster


Set in and around a South Yorkshire railway depot, Ken Loach's film follows what happens to a group of rail workers after the 1995 privatisation of the British rail network. The choice facing the men is clear: they can either carry on working for the depot and see the conditions granted them in their previous labour agreement ignored or they can take the step into the open market and begin working for an agency. Some of the men take the second option and soon discover that agency work often falls short of the proper safety standards, creating conditions which soon lead to tragedy for one of their number.
