The first televised lesbian kiss will be available to view for the first time since 1974.

The BBC Store is releasing Girl, starring Alison Steadman, which featured the first lesbian kiss to air on British television.

Girl is part of the Prejudice And Pride collection, released to celebrate LGBTQ festival Pride in London. It has not been available since first broadcast on BBC Two.

The half-hour drama tells the story of two female army officers at the end of an affair, with Steadman starring alongside Myra Frances.

Girl was very controversial at the time. According to the British Film Institute, the transmission was preceded by a special announcement by the controller of BBC Two.
