An in-depth reassessment of the nature and significance of British cinema and the British film industry during the 1960s Over half a century on, the 1960s continue to generate strong intellectual and emotional responses – both positive and negative – and this is no less true in the arena of film. Making substantial use of new and underexplored archive resources that provide a wealth of information and insight on the period in question, this book offers a fresh perspective on the major resurgence of creativity and international appeal experienced by British cinema in that dramatic decade. Transformation and Tradition in 1960s British Cinema is the first scholarly volume on this period of British cinema for more than twenty-five years. It provides a major reconsideration of the period by focusing on the central tensions and contradiction between novelty/revolution and continuity/tradition during what remains a highly contentious period of cultural production and consumption. Key features - Explores the British film industry, production, distribution and state support during the 1960s - Examines creative agency, production cultures and the contribution made by key types of creative practitioner to British films of the decade - Investigates British cinema’s connections with television, advertising and pop music
