Gay drama Against The Law is nominated for BAFTA


The one-off BBC drama, which starred Daniel Mays, Mark Edel-Hunt and Mark Gatiss, portrayed the famous battle over anti-gay laws and steps made by the British nation to recognize that homosexuality was not a crime. Earlier this month it has been nominated for a BAFTA TV award in the one-off drama category, facing competition from an episode of Netflix anthology series Black Mirror, play adaptation King Charles III, and drama series Murdered for Being Different. In the 1950s, the founder of the National Motor Museum Lord Montagu was notoriously convicted and later imprisoned for homosexuality alongside two other gay activists. The case sparked the movement that a decade later finally succeeded in decriminalizing homosexuality for consenting adults in England and Wales, in 1967. The scandal and subsequent gay rights battles led by journalist Peter Wildeblood was the key idea of the drama produced by BBC2.
