What is Noughts and Crosses about?

The BBC production is based on a series of dystopian novels written by Malorie Blackman.

The first – Noughts and Crosses – was written in 2001. It conjures up an alternate reality in which races of white and black are segregated. Teenage girl Sephy belongs to the black ruling class but falls in love with Callum. He is a nought and belongs to the white underclass.

Essentially, it’s an original tale of forbidden love, commenting powerfully on themes of race and segregation.
