Victim + Q&A

As part of BFI Southbank's Dirk Bogarde season, a screening of Victim (1961) was followed by a panel discussion including author John Coldstream (Dirk Bogarde: The Authorised Biography), and Bogarde's co-stars Sylvia Syms and and Peter McEnery, hosted by the BFI's Brian Robinson. With candour and humour they converse about the Basil Deardon film that was so daring and controversial for its time. As the first film in the English language to use the word homosexual, it was awarded with an X certificate, which made it inaccessible to anyone under 16.
