In 1990, Dr. Peter Jepson-Young learned he had AIDS. Believing that “there’s no endpoint to education,” he began taping a series of two-minute “video diaries” that documented the continuing fullness of his life and offered insights - from the perspectives of both patient and doctor - into what it was like to have AIDS. Aired weekly in Canada, this unique series captured the country’s imagination and won widespread affection for the man known as “Dr. Peter.” Initially youthful and fit, Dr. Peter chronicles a series of afflictions that, though they cost him his sight, his looks and his energy, never diminished his ability to embrace life. With disarming candor and humor, he discusses not only his condition, but the many issues of spirituality, personal history and family relations surrounding his life and illness.
