Girl lesbian kiss



The BBC has announced it plans to release the first lesbian kiss that was shown on British television again.

Alison Steadman Myra Francis

This is the first time that images will be released since 1974. The viewers at the time had seen this wonderful kiss between actresses Alison Steadman and Myra Francis in the episode "Girl" of the drama tv series titled "Second City Firsts" whose story followed two female military officers.

"When I was offered the part I felt quite nervous. A completely new adventure. Never been offered anything like it before," Steadman said.

"The director, Peter Gill, was great because he didn’t fuss about the fact they were two women or that they had to kiss; he said it was just a love story.

"I was worried about my parents watching it, only because I thought my mum would be a bit embarrassed by comments from neighbours, but they took it well. My mum said she thought it was great and was very moved by it."

"Girl" is available in BBC Store as part of the Prejudice And Pride collection for only £1,99: https://store.bbc.com/second-city-firsts/second-city-firsts-series-2/girl
