Killer In The Village

First transmitted in 1983, Horizon traces the spread of AIDS across America. AIDS - Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome - was only named in 1982, and was still largely unknown. This programme follows the search for a cause and cure, and asks whether the seeds of a spreading epidemic has already reached London.
