♔ ‘My Generation’- Michael Caine

British film icon Sir Michael Caine who starred in such classic British films as ‘Alfie’ and ‘Get Carter‘ turned 85 this month (14/03). He’d be forgiven for reaching for his pipe and slippers – but instead the famous Cockney is starring in a brand new documentary. ‘My Generation’.

‘Me and my mates used to hear our parents talking about the good old days. We asked ourselves, what was so good about them? For the first time in history, the young working class – people like me – stood up for ourselves and said, “We are here, this is our society, and we are not going away.”‘
