NOTES

About his period teaching: " . . .coming straight from university, the whole impact of the outside world was very, very strong. It was probably the first kind of wide community life I'd come across at all; for though I'd been happy at boarding school and university, I'd felt totally incapsulated there. Teaching was my first taste of social reality; and you can't deal daily with working-class youngsters and their parents in their own habitat and retain an archaic view of the lower classes as comic relief or criminals, the roles they traditionally filled in British films." --Karel Reisz quoted in "World Film Directors", Volume Two
