Belonging: The Truth Behind the Headlines is an investigative feature documentary film about where power lies in this country. With some explosive reveals about government and business collusion - we re-look at events around 3 industrial disputes, 3 governments and over 3 decades. The impact of such government and corporate power on individuals, communities, democracy and human rights in the UK is heart rendering. We reveal - a secret government plan to destroy community and collectivism and acts outside the law. The documents we have found prove what has long been suspected by many but not proven - until now. Through heart rendering personal stories from those at the heart of these industrial disputes we show the impact of the actions of those in power on individuals and communities - but also question what lies ahead. Power: "who has it, and what do they do with it" is as relevant today as it ever was. Written by Morag Livingstone

User Reviews

An independent documentary that explores the extent to which successive governments and companies collude to break unions and what it means to fight back.
30 May 2017 | by penkydogSee all my reviews

A documentary film showing how government and companies have colluded for their own gain at the expense of the workers they employ, with little or no regards for their actions. There is documented evidence showing meetings between Margaret Thatcher and Rupert Murdoch and how she oversaw Murdochs takeover plans which should have been sent to the monopolies commission. Fascinating stuff and pretty scary the lengths big companies will go to and how the government will help them. I really enjoyed leaning about the three disputes and there were some heart wrenching moments from the people affected, but also some light hearted moments too. The film shows that despite all that was thrown at them, Unions stood together and fought for their rights. A film to absorb and ponder, could your employer do this to you? Some shameful actions by large corporations, whose activities and collusion with government need to be shown and questioned. Well done for making a film that tells it how it is.
