2:36 pm
i‘ve been speaking to lots of people here and it‘s just hit sport now on afternoon live them like a juggernaut. hearing, as you‘ve just heard, with hugh woozencroft. derek speaking there, a huge game to come brings it all home to everybody how for tottenham hotspurs this evening absolutely serious this is. as they play in the champions league semi final for the first time looking at you now, looking healthy, in a very long time. and yet the prognosis at the time you were diagnosed, iam sure i am sure that the fans will already be feeling a bit of tension. it is was anything but. the first time they have been in the yeah, as you mentioned, i was semifinal since 1962. the last time infected when i was five years old. we have played any of any description was in 1982. the spurs with hepatitis b and c, and also hiv. my parents told me when i was 12 tea m description was in 1982. the spurs team prepared for their first leg that i had hiv, and i was diagnosed as having full blown aids description was in 1982. the spurs team prepared for theirfirst leg in when i was 16. london against ajax. not ideal for at that time there were no medications available, apart from azt. length, they think he is not ajax side, they have both waited for a derek mentioned azt in his chance in the semi finals. the spurs testimony this morning. it‘s a juggernaut treatment, the way he put it, and it absolutely was. boss says they both have a place in i have no doubt that for me and a lot of other people, the last four. it pushed us over the edge into full—blown aids.
2:37 pm
i think we can talk about quality, at the time there were no treatments available whatsoever, apart from that one drug. so it was a waiting game to die, but it is a team that deserve a lot and for four years i struggled of credit. his managers and the in and out of hospital, players they are doing a fantastic job. i feel it is a little bit like waiting to die from aids. andy, at the time, those us. no one believe that we can of us who were around, arrive at the final. i think the same for tottenham, but in the end there was a stigma around, as well, around aids. we are there because we deserve to apart from the physical problems you are dealing with, there was that as well? absolutely. be. i think liverpool and barcelona, it was a time of the government clicked and they are trying to show publicising adverts with the falling the world that they deserved to go gravestone, "do not die of ignorance," aids all the way. ajax on the way? going was plastered everywhere. it was a dirty disease, it was associated with what were then classed as not nice behaviours. into the game against spurs, they have the pedigree in this competition, but the last of them and so people were frightened of aids and people were frightened came back in 1995. in fact, this young squad that will be pointing of people who had aids. there was no telling anybody. out reach the europa league final just a couple of years ago. you this was something we had to keep might remember that they were beaten completely by ourselves. i was lucky in that i was quite by manchester united. they

2:43 pm
and i wanted to show that firstly, murder or manslaughter. it‘s ok to feel like that and it‘s it could be a range of health fine to be on the medication, and safety legislation but as yet but also that there were points that there are no suspects. i felt that i was never going to get off them of course it‘s a big task or i was never gonna feel better for nick downing and his team. and here i am, you know? one of their biggest tasks is i feel like myself. winning the support of the families. the 28—year—old says anxiety, they‘ve seen over the past 20 years which began after receiving death threats at the 2014 winter games, three police investigations come began to steadily deteriorate. and go but no criminal charges have the depression kind of like became been brought, and they have lost faith in the authorities. quite debilitating and i was in bed a lot, i was struggling to keep up with any, like, normal life. so, last september i was asked i hit a really massive low to lead an assessment after i got injured, 0lympic season, into the findings of the gosport independent panel report. and there was stuff going on behind the scenes and ijust and the previous hampshire ended up broken, i guess. investigations, three previous investigations. commentator: away they go, and christie goes down before with a small team brought together they reach the very first corner! from the eastern region, elise says anti—depression policing area, we've looked medication helped her get at the findings of the report. through to last year‘s we've looked at the previous winter olympics, but the disappointment of coming home empty—handed, as well as the break—up of her relationship, rochester investigations and today, took her to her lowest ebb.
2:44 pm

3:08 pm
anything to make amends for that. where the food on their plate comes from. nick, for those of us struggling to remember what was in the school curriculum, tell us what changes the system in wales will see? well, that‘s right. the current is there anything else you would like to see? i am honoured to be national curriculum in wales was here today. it is good that this is introduced when i did my gcses under the age of it as part of the reason happening now. although things may why the welsh government says it needs to change. kirsty williams, the welsh government education have changed over the past 30 years secretary says it is a 30 years old, all sorts of things have been bolted on and clearly few people would disagree with the fact the skill set or5o, hiv, have changed over the past 30 years required of the current generation or so, hiv, hep c there is still a will be very different to when you stigma associated with it, even andi will be very different to when you and i were in school, simon. and as and i were in school, simon. and as a result there needs to be a major today. i think society needs to move overhaul. just backtrack a little bit, the national curriculum, there on from that. earlier i spoke to andy evans, isa bit, the national curriculum, there is a very restricted list of content who was given a contaminated blood transfusion by the nhs when he was just five years old. earlier i spoke to andy evans, who was given a contaminated blood which will be replaced in wales in
3:09 pm
the two years and i freer, looser he explained what the public enquiry means to him others involved... arrangement. and one of the defining it has been such a roller—coaster principles on this is that schools ride. i have been speaking to a lot and teachers will really be getting the freedom to design their own of people here and that is hit them system and what they teach their like a juggernaut. derek speaking children and add an individual school level. this is an early brings it home to everybody how serious this is. looking at you now, d raft, school level. this is an early draft, it will go through the emotional process of consultation —— you look healthy. the prognosis at the time when you are diagnosed was the usual process of consultation anything but. as you mentioned, i with birds and parents. the idea is to be rolled out in three years‘ was infected when i was five years old. with both hepatitis b and c and time. —— the usual process of consultation with boards and hiv. my tip parents told me when i was 12 that i had hiv. i was pa rents. diagnosed as having aids and i was and presumably teachers will like 16. at the time, there were no this, won‘t they? they often complain about too much central control getting in the way medications. derek mentioned azt. it of theirjobs. that is right, teachers are not like isa medications. derek mentioned azt. it is a juggernaut treatment. it many other professions they do not absolutely was. i have no doubt that like a central control —— teachers are like many other professions they
3:10 pm
for me and a lot of people it pushed do not like central control. i think us over for me and a lot of people it pushed that has been reflected in the tone us over the edge into full—blown of the responses so far, having said aids. at the time, there were no all that, turn concerns i would pick treatments available. it was a up all that, turn concerns i would pick up on. one, predictably is money. the welsh government has set aside waiting game to die. forfour years, various inset days and training days i struggled in and out of hospital, for the teachers and i think waiting to die from aids. at the eve ryo ne for the teachers and i think everyone would agree that the success of this really depends on how well prepared the teaching time, those of us who are around, profession is in wales for less. there is a stigma around aids. apart and, of course paying for all that extra training. the welsh government has set aside around £a0 million and from the physical problems, there was that as well. absolutely. the some say that they need to be more money and welsh commences that is already a significant investment. we government publicised adverts do not can do this. to call and say that, i think a broader concern which is that the welsh education system is die of ignorance. aids was plastered not any different to any other everywhere. it was a dirty disease. whereby one of the real concerns is it was associated with what was then the radiation and the consistency thatis classed as not nice behaviours. the radiation and the consistency that is likely people were frightened of aids. people were frightened of aids. people are frightened of people who —— the variation in the consistency
3:11 pm
had aids. there is no telling that you see. and if you get rid of anybody. it was something we had to the standardised way that education keep to ourselves. i was lucky is taught across the country, there are some who say that potentially because i was quite young. i could that could increase the risk of talk to my parents about it. people greater degrees of variation within the system. so there simon, a who were diagnosed when they were flavour of some of the arguments older were born to keep it away from that we are seeing. but certainly this is really the defining story in everybody, including their family and parents. they had nobody to talk the welsh education sector for the next three years or so. thank you to about it. there are several very much nick. people our age, my age, who are peter, what is facetime a farmer? watching the testimony and close to it isa it is a good idea. it is a free idea tea rs. watching the testimony and close to tears. iam watching the testimony and close to tears. i am wondering what you hope this will achieve. this could be a to link children and teenagers to a farmer on two—year enquiry. what would you to link children and teenagers to a farmerona to link children and teenagers to a farmer on a facetime call so they can ask questions about food, where judge a success? this has been it comes from and the history of the firm. now at the school pupils that coming for a long time. i have asked we see are from washington academy near lincoln and they have been a lot of people what they want to come out. what they would like to paired with —— history of the farm.
