Dur­ing the 1950s and 1960s, Leeds-born mu­si­cian and com­poser Wally Stott be­came well known for his ra­dio and TV com­po­si­tions – per­haps most fa­mously he worked on The Goon Show and penned the theme for Hancock’s Half Hour. Then, in 1972 he hit the head­lines for a very dif­fer­ent rea­sonason – he un­der­went a sex change and was re­named An­gela Mor­ley. In this doc­u­men­tary, Stu­art Barr charts the trans­gen­der pi­o­neer’s life.
