Awarded Emmy for “Best Documentary” in 2007
It’s a fantastic programme. Fry talks with remarkable candour about himself and his rollercoaster ride of a life: the early signs that something was out of place, the bad behaviour at school, the stealing and the cocaine binges, the feeling of invincibility and extreme confidence, and the miserable lows, the times he wanted to be dead (or in Belgium).
He chats to some of his famous chums (Robbie Williams, Carrie Fisher, Rick Stein, Tony Slattery) about their varying levels of madness, and he talks to some of the others, the unknown millions. And because he’s Stephen Fry, he does it with a wonderful posh charm and a warm wit.
