Stephen Fry: HIV and Me (very mature content)

Stephen Fry hosts this brave documentary on the experiences of British HIV sufferers. A good watch, shows how perceptions of HIV/AIDS have changed and how it is ignored.

Be warned – there are graphic descriptions during some parts of the documentary and careful editing would be advised before you show it to a group of students.

Of the six parts available on here, part six (after the jump) is a good one to show – Stephen is talking to a teenage girl born with HIV who has made a stand against bullies and made it her prerogative to inform others. This part doesn’t need editing, either.

Again for older students, there is a link to the GI Jonny website at the end of the show. Looks like a bit of a gimmick, to be honest, but might get through to some.

Part 1 of 6 (Parts 2-6 after the jump):
