Community is important and we take a look at some examples of how it can play out on screen, starting with the latest season of the Donald Glover-penned Atlanta – which is fast becoming one of the most creative and experimental TV shows of the past decade.

Luke also takes a trip to the nineteenth century Welsh coal mines, with John Ford’s 1941 classic How Green Was My Valley. Shot for shot, a beautiful movie with an evocative look at the nostalgia of the past and the loss of family.

As a bonus, we also remember the often forgotten gem Akenfield, an intriguing example of 70s British cinema which crosses generations of Suffolk families and how they live and work.
