Against the Law (BBC 2/HD | 9:00pm to 10:30pm | Wednesday 26th July 2017)

Powerful factual drama following the lead-up to the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, which decriminalised homosexual acts between adult males, in private, in England and Wales. The dramatic events that led to this Act took place over ten years before and are at the heart of this film. When Peter Wildeblood fell in love with Edward McNally in 1952, homosexuality was a crime. Wildeblood’s lover, under pressure from the authorities, turned evidence against him in the infamous Montagu Trial. Wildeblood and his friends were found guilty of homosexual offences and jailed. With his career in tatters and his private life painfully exposed, Wildeblood began his sentence a broken man, but he emerged from Wormwood Scrubs a year later determined to do all he could to change the way these draconian laws against homosexuality impacted on the lives of men like him. Woven through this powerful drama is testimony from a chorus of men who lived through those dark days.
