Dr. Peter Diaries: AIDS Then & Now - British Columbia -

Twenty years ago, Dr. Peter Jepson-Young helped change the way we look at HIV/AIDS by chronicling his battle with the illness through a weekly video diary on CBC Television.

Starting September 7, CBC Vancouver is marking the anniversary of those diaries in several ways. Each day, leading up to and beyond World AIDS Day on December 1, another one of the original Dr. Peter Diaries will appear here on their website.

A special series on CBC News Vancouver at 6 with reporter Alan Waterman will revisit some of the diary entries and look at the legacy left behind, including the Dr. Peter Centre where important and sometimes controversial research and work continue.

CBC Radio One's The Early Edition with host Rick Cluff will feature interviews with people who knew and worked with Dr. Peter, as well as profiling those who are living with HIV/AIDS today and those who continue to work fighting and treating the disease.

Watch for a new series of diaires to begin on September 17 on radio, TV and the web.
