Male Homosexual

In this programme, made two years before the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, a group of men discuss their 'problem', the issue of acceptance in society and public reactions to their lifestyle.

The broadcast contains outmoded attitudes towards sexuality, but nevertheless provides a fascinating insight into a time when homosexuals risked social stigma and even imprisonment.

↗ Originally broadcast 5 January 1965.
