U ovom dokumentarnom filmu možemo vidjeti Britaniju 50-tih godina kada je došlo do dekriminalizacije seksualnog čina između dva muškarca.
Do tada su revnosni britanski sudovi osuđivali homoseksualnost zatvorskim kaznama, a gay populacija je smatrana samim moralnim dnom društva. Policija je sprovodila racije, ispitivala počinioce tog “gnusnog” dijela i pravila liste za hapšenja

“A Very British Sex Scandal” je dokumantarni film o suđenju Peteru Wildebloodu i Lordu Edward Montagau, uhvaćenih u zamku policiske istrage čiji je cilj privođenje i osuda zbog homoseksualnosti. Ovaj skandal je poljuljao moderno britansko pravosuđe čime je odpočeo proces dekriminalizacije homoseksualnosti.
Ova dokumentarna drama je prikazana na britanskom BBC-ju, kao mješavina filmske priče i intrvjua sada već ostarijelih aktera.

In January 1954, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, a 28-year-old aristocratic socialite, and his friend Peter Wildeblood, the newly-appointed diplomatic correspondent of The Daily Mail, were arrested after a concerted effort by the police to ensnare them for homosexual offences. The subsequent case scandalised high society, electrified the nation and was to change the course of British history.

Mixing drama with documentary testimony, this moving film re-lives the extraordinary events of the trial and paints a vivid picture of what it was like to be gay in 50s Britain. With contributions from 50s figures including Lord Montagu and veteran gay rights campaigners Allan Horsfall and Michael Brown, the film also dramatises the meetings of the Wolfenden Committee whose landmark recommendations led to the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain – forty years ago.
