If watching "The Normal Heart" this week made you interested in furthering your knowledge of the truly extraordinary (in the worst possible way) period of AIDS it was depicting, look no further than this incredible hour long super cut put together by Such Is Life videos of dozens of horrifying, fascinating and largely appalling broadcast news clips that discuss AIDS between 1982 and 1992. 

It gives some major insight into the way the mainstream media handled the crisis, and part of the what the folks of "The Normal Heart" were up against. Definitely a must watch, no matter how informed you are on this part of our history.
