The National Lesbian & Gay Survey - BBC Radio 4 Writing the Century: The Experience of Love

NLGS bbc

Writer and performer, Christopher Green has developed a new drama project, for BBC Radio 4, based on the Mass Observation Archive’s National Lesbian and Gay Survey (NLGS). The NLGS was set up by Kenneth 

Barrow in the mid 1980s, to record the experiences of ordinary people living under the shadow of oppression such as Section 28 and the AIDS crisis.

In the early 1990s, Christopher became Ken’s buddy, in a scheme organised by the Terrence Higgins Trust. This drama brings contributions from the Archive to life, alongside the story of Christopher who was with Ken in the last few months of his life.

This five-part drama is scheduled to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4, everyday at 10:45 and then again at 19:45, the week beginning the 9th May.
