McCullin is a whirlwind tour through a remarkable professional life spanning 20 years. Don McCullin's photographic career, which began in 1959, specialised in examining the underside of society. McCullin couldn't read properly and his community was full of gangs and violence but ironically they proved his salvation. With an inherent gift for composition and knowing when to press the shutter, his portraits of a local gang were bought by The Observer, opening the door to another world. McCullin became an internationally known photojournalist, particularly recognised for his war photography and images of urban strife.

The doc is a powerful showcase of post-Second World War global conflict, including Northern Ireland and the Congo to Beirut and Cambodia; from the perspective of a gifted humanist.
