    From Kes to Clockwork Orange, the 20 best British films

    On 1 September 1949, Carol Reed’s celebrated thriller The Third Man was released. It was an immediate hit and in the ensuing seven decades, The Third Man’s popularity has remained constant, with frequent appearances on TV and in the cinema, as well as a beautiful restoration in 2015.The film has also featured regularly in lists of the greatest films of all time, and many critics treasure it. It’s been 20 years now since the BFI placed The Third Man at the top of their own list of greatest British films, so perhaps it’s time for a reappraisal of the finest examples of British cinema.

    Dame Barbara Windsor urges Boris Johnson to review 'devastating' dementia care

    Dame Barbara Windsor has thrown her support behind an open letter calling on new PM Boris Johnson to review the “devastating” state of dementia care.Speaking as a new ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society, she said: “My heart goes out to the many, many people who are really struggling to get the care they so desperately need.”Her husband, Scott Mitchell, added: “Seeing the true state of our social care system has shown me how people, who aren't as fortunate to be in the same position as myself and Barbara financially, are facing a constant battle to get what they need. I want to do everything I can to help them.”Dame Barbara was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2014, but her diagnosis was only made public last year.He said: “I want the public to know because they are naturally very drawn to Barbara and she loves talking to them. Rather than me living in fear she might get confused or upset, they’ll know that if her behaviour seems strange, it’s due to Alzheimer's and accept it for what it is.”
