In episode two, Richard explores the homosexuality of the ancients, tracing the transition from classical celebration to religious repression. Part three focuses on the complex relationship between sexuality and gender as Richard surveys the so-called 'third sex' in places such as India, Indonesia and Thailand. He concludes the series by looking at the globalisation of gay identity. Is the West attempting to promote ideas of gay liberation which are alien to the developing world? Producer: Laurence Grissell.

Audio version is depressive.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
As I listened, all I kept thinking is, " I need visuals", especially when discussion turned to fine art.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
