Me with Red Ribbon

Don't Ever Wipe Tears without Gloves, BBC4


I have just finished watching "Don't Ever Wipe Tears without Gloves" on BBC4. It is a 3 part TV mini-series telling the true story of HIV and AIDS amongst young gay men in Stockholm, Sweden in the 1980s. The series killed me. It is heartbreaking. But it is without a shadow of a doubt the best thing I have seen on TV this year; in fact it is the best thing I have seen on TV in the last few years.

Highly highly highly recommended.
