Part of Channel 4\u2019s \u201cFifty Shades of Gay\u201d season, this one-off documentary deals with one of the most troublesome events in recent history, that affected people regardless of sexuality. Of course, when Aids and HIV first came to people\u2019s attention it was first reported that occurred in gay circles. This documentary, narrated by Julie Walters and featuring interviews with Paul O\u2019Grady and Jean Paul Gaultier, as well as front-line doctors and activists, looks at how the UK tackled Aids at the height of the panic. This programme looks at the strange alliances formed by gay rights groups, doctors and Margaret Thatcher\u2019s Conservative government, as well as the formation of possibly the scariest TV advert of all time: the Aids tombstone narrated by John Hurt. Epidemic: When Britain Fought Aids is on Channel 4 at 22.00.
