A groundbreaking soap opera that featured one of the UK's first recurring non-stereotyped gay characters is being given a new airing on one of the country's independent television stations. Talking Pictures, a small TV channel noted for its championing of classic output from British television and movie history, is broadcasting Together, a soap originally conceived by the old Southern TV Region of the ITV Network in 1980, back in the days when both BBC and ITV had very limited output in the daytime. Set in a housing complex inhabited by a variety of groups of people, the programme addressed issues such as abortion and homosexuality in a non-flippant manner. However, the repeats of the series have had some of the more archaic and derogatory language considered acceptable in 1980, cut for the new transmissions. The programme airs at 9am on weekday mornings. Look out for Sarah Greene, now known as a TV presenter, in one of her first appearances.
