Best Terrestrial TV Documentary So Far This Year
This two-parter is the best terrestrial TV documentary so far this year. Fifty years on from the decriminalisation of homosexuality, Stephen K Amos and Susan Calman collect first hand accounts of the intervening years. The variety of experience is key. Some testimony is profoundly moving, some - particularly the psychiatric and medical stuff - outrageous, other parts very funny indeed.
