[edit] Information

Secret History: The Sex Change Spitfire Ace Sex Change Spitfire Ace: Secret History (w/t) is the extraordinary story of the unique relationship between two of the most remarkable pioneers of the twentieth century: Michael Dillon, the world’s first woman to become a man and Roberta Cowell, Britain’s first man to become a woman. It caused a press sensation in 1950s Britain when the story broke, but was ultimately to end in tragedy. Now, sixty years later the amazing untold medical history of the first sex changes can be told. It has an astonishing twist: Michael Dillon, a medical student, illegally carried out the castration of Robert Cowell to enable him to become Roberta. The film has exclusive interviews with the journalist and author Liz Hodgkinson, whose friendship with Cowell led to the discovery of the letters revealing the deep but unrequited love of Michael Dillon for Roberta Cowell. It was this friendship between the two sex change pioneers that led to Dillon agreeing to carry out the castration. Liz Hodgkinson shows the extraordinary handwritten contract in which Cowell consents to be castrated by Dillon, which will be revealed on television for the first time.
