Billed as 'a kind of post-modern queer soap opera for Britain', Andrea Weiss' documentary tells a sharp story. She evaluates the way gay and lesbian people have been depicted in mainstream British film and television. Using clips to illustrate, she moves from Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes to the modern era via St Trinian's, Dirk Bogarde and the Carry-On films. Narrated by Sir Ian McKellen.
