Mark Gatiss’ Next Project Will Explore LGBT History in the UK.

Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss has found the next project that will keep him busy during the series’ hiatus. He will curate and oversee a series of specially commissioned dramatic monologues that follow a century of the UK gay experience. The eight short films will air under together under the title Queers on BBC Four. The intention is to mark the anniversary of 50 years since laws passed that exempted gay men from prosecution.


Eight writers, including Gatiss himself, will take part in the project. And each will tell a different story. For five of these writers, Queers will be their television debut. These include Keith Jarrett, Jon Bradfield, Gareth McLean, Matthew Baldwin and Michael Dennis. The series of monologues will begin with “The Man on the Platform”, a tale penned by Gatiss and set in 1917. It tells the story of a young man returning from the trenches of the First World War and reflecting on his attraction to another man.


The other stories will cover everything from the 1957 Wolfenden Report and the 1967 Sexual Offence Act, to the HIV crisis, to life as a gay actor in the 1980s. The goal, according to the official press release, is to “mark and celebrate some of the most poignant, funny, entertaining, tragic and riotous moments of British gay history”.

Edited to a resonable size and un bold.

It happened by accident and I didn't know-how to correct. Having said that a lot of Mark's work is very good and is worth shouting about.

:D

Cover the text as though your going to cut and paste it, then go to the tools and click in B to un bold it and then the T fifthalong and choose (I chose 4) to get to reasonable size. I think that was about 7 or 8.

BBC - BBC announces major new season, Gay Britannia, marking the 50th anniversary of The Sexual Offences Act - Media Centre

Daniel Mays
is playing Wildeblood, with Mark Gatiss, Richard Gadd, Richard Dillane and David Robb taking other key roles. The script has been written by Sirens creator Brian Fillis. Director Fergus O’Brien has largely worked in documentary in the past, but seems to be making a good stab at drama here.



I saw the trailer the other night and thought about posting here or starting another thread. I completely forgot. :facepalm: It could be interesting.
