Editorial Reviews

Ryan White became a national poster child for HIV/AIDS in the United States after being expelled from school because of his infection. A hemophiliac, he became infected with HIV from a contaminated blood treatment and, when diagnosed in 1984, was given six months to live.

Though doctors said he posed no risk to other students, when Ryan tried to return to school, many parents and teachers rallied against his attendance.

In a rare interview, Ryan and his mother describe what it's like to live with HIV while dealing with the trials of growing up. It's a remarkable profile of patience, courage and determination.

This program also includes a report from April 5, 1990 that has Ryan answering questions from school children.

Airdate: 3/2/88 and 4/5/90

I purchased one copy and it didn't work so I returned it and got another. The second copy didn't work either. Both played for about 7 minutes and then played a black screen.

This product is a compilation of two "Nightline" segments concerning Ryan White, the first filmed in 1988 and the second in 1990. Both are very illuminating and insightful, providing a deep look into Ryan's struggles and triumphs, as well as his daily life. While the first is a simple taped interview with him, his mother and a schoolfriend, the second one is particularly good: it shows Ryan at a Q&A session with sixth-graders, and shows how honestly and openly he answered their questions about his experiences. A real treasure - along with his own book, titled "Ryan White: My Own Story".
One aspect to note about this product - if you are buying from overseas - is that this DVD is coded for region 1, due to being manufactured in the USA. It did not work on my region 4 DVD player, but did on my (probably) region-free computer DVD drive. As a result, if you do not have a multi-region enabled DVD or Blu-ray player, I would recommend trying it on your computer to see if it works on there.
Although I believe that the DVD itself is excellent, when it arrived the DVD case was badly dented, scratched and cracked. Amazon should definitely pack DVDs and the like in much more sturdy packaging, so that they are not damaged in transit.

At roughly the 6:30 mark, the DVD fades to black in the middle of a segment and never comes back on. I returned the first one purchased, and the second one did the same thing. In looking at the other reviews, I'm not the only person to experience this. Customer service was wonderful in terms of the return; however, I strongly suspect this batch of DVD's is flawed. I purchased this for classroom use and think it would have been an excellent teaching tool had it worked.

I almost forgot what it meant to have a national news network devote so much time to thoughtful discussion on a major issue. We have lost so much in the 24 hour news cycle that focuses on talking points and entertainment reporting.
