It's also been discussed in the Stephen's a Busy Boy thread posted by Fryphile. It's worth checking out because it links to an article and mentions two other documentaries Stephen will be filming.

It hasn't, so thanks. I'm sure a HIV & Me section will go up at some point like we've got with SLOTMD.

The video in question is now unavailable. What was it and can you find another link?

Odd, the BBC put it up. It's still open in another tab.

I can see it. This one looks like it's going to be as bumpy and emotional a ride as TSLOFTMD was.

John, the video still works for me. That's odd. It's a preview of the HIV and Me documentary. It shows Stephen visiting a hospital and having an HIV test. He talks about how he visited a lot of people there in the 80s and 90s and how all of them have now passed away.

Here's a rough transcript:

Stephen: I came here, to the Middlesex Hospital, many times in the late 80s, and through the early 90s, to visit friends who… who were lying in beds here… or often dying. Every one of the people I came to visit is now dead.

Montage of Stephen reading about AIDS and talking to people. Cut to a hospital consultant room.

Stephen: So, are you going to take my blood from my wrist, or my-

Doctor: Yeah, I’ll do it-

Stephen: Where from?

Doctor: From… it’s going to be from the end of the finger.

Stephen: Oh right.

Doctor: There’s some here. Ok, so a very, very small jab.

Stephen: Ooh… ow! That’s amazing! So you can do this test in fifteen minutes and you’ll be able to tell me whether I’m HIV positive?

Cut to close-up of Stephen standing in the street.

Stephen: What I want to know, what I really, really want to know is just exactly who the high-risk groups are now, if there are any.

Cut to close-up of passer-by (I guess).

Passer-by: You can’t tell me to have sex with a condom when I was sleeping with my own wife. Even though he may know that’s he’s been sleeping around with other people, he doesn’t think of the next person.

Cut to street scene.

Girl: Yeah, I’ve got it, I’m a teenager. I’m normal, I was born with it.

Thank you very much. I guess this promises to be in the same style as SLOTMD, which is a good thing.

It does look very powerful; certainly in the same vein as SLOTMD.

Here are a few screencaps:

I hope there's a DVD release of his health-related documentaries. It would be a shame to lose such a powerful couple of broadcasts.
