Trivia

Originally made for the BBC Schools TV series "Scene". During Margaret Thatcher government's reign the BBC was worried by the pro-gay storyline though, made several cuts and a new "choose straight" ending. The film also had to be shown at night. It has subsequently been shown in daytime and with the cuts and ending restored. See more »

An excellent romantic coming out and coming to terms with being gay, film
9 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Gay Film Festival and at the time found it an excellent film to watch. It caused quite a fuss back then in the UK and was cut to shreds and had the ending changed for UK TV. It's purpose if I recall was to help young gays.

Australian TV has also shown this a few times but I don't believe it was the original uncut or modified ending version.

22 years later I've managed to buy on Ebay, the original uncut version that was released on VHS.

Keep in mind it's purpose and when it was filmed and shown, and you should enjoy it. Hard to believe nowadays that it caused such controversy which caused it to be cut and its ending changed to be allowed to shown on TV.
