: Stephen Fry: HIV and Me

2/2. From Dying of Aids to Living with HIV. What is life like living with HIV and Aids today and what impact has treatment had? The comedian and actor meets people whose lives have been saved by the drugs, but also discovers that taking the medication often leads to terrible side effects and that thousands of patients now find themselves resistant to the drugs. But at least in the UK there is treatment.
Most HIV patients around the world can only dream of such a situation. Fry goes to Uganda to explore why the medication doesn't seem to be getting through. The answer is unexpected and depressing. As he concludes his journey he makes what he feels is his most important discovery. Medically things have improved massively, but psychologically and socially things seem, if anything, to have got worse. Director/Producer Ross Wilson


Producer: Ross Wilson

The whole vile job process is examined from having to write the dreaded CV, to deciphering meaningless management-speak, through to tips on throwing a sickie.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
