Storyline

The Red and the Blue was transmitted on Channel 4 almost exactly a year after Ken Loach had filmed both Conservative and Labour party autumn conferences in October 1982. The film is a fly-on-the-wall look at both conferences and focuses on the grassroots of each party, although a number of Members of Parliament and other significant figures are also shown speaking from the conference floor and in fringe events.
