AIRDATE | Gripping love story NOUGHTS + CROSSES broadcast premiere this week

Adapted from the first book in Malorie Blackman’s bestselling series, the much-anticipated Noughts + Crosses is a gripping story of first love set in a dangerous, alternate world where racism divides society.

The series has already been available in Australia on streaming service Binge, and this week arrives on BBC First.

Separated by their colour but united by forbidden love and burning injustice, Sephy Hadley (Masali Baduza) and Callum McGregor (Jack Rowan) are fighting for more than simply the right to be together.

Sephy is a ‘Cross’, a member of the black ruling class and daughter of a prominent politician. Callum is a ‘Nought’, a white member of the underclass. The two have been friends since childhood, but that’s as far as it can go.

Their relationship grows ever more complicated as they come of age and against a backdrop of prejudice, distrust and rebellion, the passionate romance that builds between them will lead them both into terrible danger.

An iconic love story of two families separated by power and prejudice but forever entwined by fate.

Noughts + Crosses features an exceptional cast including Paterson Joseph, Bonnie Mbuli, Kike Brimah, Helen Baxendale, Ian Hart, Josh Dylan, Shaun Dingwall and guest appearance by Stormzy.

Thursdays at 8.30pm from September 10 on BBC First

BBC First is available in Australia via Foxtel and Fetch TV
