This Movie Is About.


Two of Us is a 1987 gay-themed BBC television film written by Leslie Stewart and directed by Roger Tonge. It was produced for the BBC Schools Scene series, and intended for young adults. It confronted the Thatcherite government's attempt to ban gay sex education in schools via the controversial (and since repealed) section 28 legislation. Given this backdrop, the BBC opted not to show it during the day and it was screened late at night, even though it was originally created for a school audience. It wasn't until February 1990 that the play was shown during the day.
