This report features a remarkable AIDS patient, Nkosi Johnson, a little boy you won't soon forget. In June 2001 correspondent Jim Wooten reported the obituary of an AIDS patient, a young twelve-year-old boy in South Africa who was born HIV-positive and outlived the prediction of his doctors by years. Nkosi struck such a cord with Jim that he turned the story in to a book, ''We Are All The Same: A Story of a Boy's Courage and a Mother's Love.'' This program shows us Jim's original report on Nkosi, and Ted will talk to him about why that little boy struck such a chord with him. Also contained on this DVD is a moment from the first 25 years of ''Nightline.'' Archbishop Desmond Tutu reflects on AIDS and the Almighty.Airdate: 12/3/04Anchor: Ted Koppel

However, she may also have been at least an accessory to torture and murder and there were serious allegations that she is directly responsible for both.Anchor: Ted Koppel Correspondent: Jim WootenAirdate: September 25, 1997When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
