This investigative documentary shows the impact of government and corporate power on democracy and human rights. The film re-examines events surrounding Murdoch’s purchase of The Times Newspapers in 1981 and the News International dispute (1986/7), Royal Mail as it prepared for privatisation (2007/8) and a dispute at the Grangemouth Oil Refinery (2013). Belonging explores what has happened behind closed doors of successive UK governments and the impact on human rights. 

Followed by a Q&A with director Morag Livingstone, Stevie Deans (who appears in the film) and Pat Rafferty, Scottish Secretary, Unite the Union (trade union officer lead during the Grangemouth dispute). Chaired by Dr David Archibald.
