Never Apologise at the Macrobert Arts Centre on the University of Stirling campus is an exhibition from the Lindsay Anderson Archive, celebrating the life and work of one of the most distinctive British film-makers of the 20th century.

Part of the generation which transformed the post-war cultural and artistic world in Britain, Lindsay Anderson’s films reflected life and society through films such as This Sporting Life (1963), starring Richard Harris as a Yorkshire rugby league player whose romantic life is not as successful as his sporting life, If…. (1969), with Malcolm McDowell as a schoolboy leading a savage revolt in an English public school, and O Lucky Man! (1972), with McDowell again as an ambitious coffee salesman in a series of improbable adventures which challenge his naive idealism.

Part of the University of Stirling’s Culture on Campus programme, Never Apologise marks the centenary of Anderson’s birth by opening up the extensive collection of his personal and working papers held in the University archives. It features new insights into Anderson’s life and work through contributions from actors, artists, academics and curators, including memories of working with the director, favourite scenes from his films and overlooked aspects of his career.
