In 1967, US TV network CBS aired an episode of their CBS Reports program entitled ‘The Homosexuals.’
The program aimed to decipher and discover more about homosexual lifestyles, what people knew about them and how people felt towards them.
The documentary opens with the results of a survey into what the average American thought about gay people.
‘Homosexuality is an enigma,’ says presenter Mike Wallace.
‘We discovered that Americans consider homosexuality more harmful to society than adultery, abortion or prostitution.’
