A missed opportunity
10 August 2017 | by peterrichboySee all my reviews

Man In The Orange Shirt is the latest program from the BBC to commemorate the 50th anniversary of homosexuality being made legal in the U.K. I really enjoyed the first part which I can imagine was a story that must have been mirrored throughout the UK during the post war years. Thousands of couples stuck In loveless marriages just because it was the right thing to do. Men and women unable to express in public their love for those they really wanted to be with. This for me was a far more interesting than the disappointing 2nd episode. We move on rapidly to the present day where the grandson is also gay and obsessed with gay dating apps on his phone and unable to admit his homosexuality to his grandmother. This as much as anything seems to be preventing him from finding a solid relationship, despite as it seemed his gran knowing all along. If the idea of this drama was to show how attitudes have changed towards same sex relationships since 1967 then it succeed but I would have liked to have seen more of what happened in the intervening years.
