Almost 20 years since Malorie Blackman’s novel was published, the BBC is airing a six-part adaptation charting the stories of much-loved protaganists Sephy and Callum.
‘Noughts + Crosses’ follows two young people who are divided by their colour, but united by love. 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 early childhood, but their relationship grows ever more complicated as they come of age. It’s the story of two families separated by power and prejudice, but forever entwined by fate.
Don’t miss Loud & Clear’s phenomenal Josh Dylan as Jude, Callum’s hot-headed older brother…
‘Noughts + Crosses’ starts on Thursday 5th March, 9pm, BBC1 & BBC iPlayer.
