As a trans woman I guess the idiocy over the pond really ought to bother me but then, I don't have to go there..........

As a trans person living in the US it doesn't really bother me either, since things are a lot more progressive in the state I live in than I ever thought possible. Fortunately the idiocy is mostly limited to states like North Carolina and the Obama administration appears to be on our side, for example with the recent directive about bathrooms in schools.

Many years ago, at a (non-family) wedding in Ireland, I bumped into my sister's uni flatmate who was then working for the BBC on Northern Ireland. Her job was to commission work that reflected the province.

Drink may have been taken. I promptly pitched a Sunday night show (after Songs of Praise and Antiques Roadshow) on a cross-border, cross-faith rivalry between two families of farmers, complete with Romeo and Juliet romance. (My mum is from right on the border; I have stories.)

When we'd finished hiccuping, she made me vow not to write it because "it's perfect for the slot and neither of us could live with the shame of its success.

Mind you, then the Beeb massacred Compton MacKenzie. Maybe I should have pitched it. It would have been better.
