The documentary followed the actor and journalist as he travelled to Uganda, Russia and India to examine gay communities.

On accepting the award Fry said:

"In the time we made this programme Out There I met some of the most horrific, evil people I have ever imagined could have possibly existed on the face of the earth; I also met some of the most heroic, brave, stalwart people I also have ever met."
