Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive (2006) (TV)

A remarkable documentary by a remarkable person.

The laughter and tears of manic depression. Stephen Fry takes us on his journey into manic depression and compares notes with others whose lives have also been touched by the condition including: Carrie Fisher, Richard Dreyfuss and Rick Stein.
Combining hilarious manic tales with tragic ones of debilitating depression, Fry also turns to experts to examine current thinking on diagnosis, potential causes and how best to treat it. With a perceived link between the condition and creativity, Stephen questions this claim looking to the long list of artists, comedians and high flyers who have and have had it.

Seriously funny and heart rending this is an powerful and empathetic look at manic depression from all angles.

Manic depression is a disease that's little talked about and little understood. This two part documentary series, presented by Stephen Fry, sets out to explore the highs and the lows, and the causes and the treatments of a condition that may effect as many as 2% of the population.

Motivated by his own personal battle, the series will follow Stephen Fry on an emotional but entertaining journey that takes him into the homes of stars such as Carrie Fisher, Richard Dreyfuss, Robbie Williams and Rick Stein; into the lives of ordinary people who juggle this illness with their working lives; and into the surgeries of psychiatrists and the labs of researchers who are trying to help control the condition.

Winner of Best Documentary at the International Emmy Awards 2007

  1. It is only xanax, not alcohol, which can offer suitable relief from the anxiety pangs. Other than alcohol, that is likely to make people violent and aggressive instead of providing suitable cure for their depression and anxiety, you should opt for the anti-anxiety pill xanax only when it has been prescribed by a doctor. To obtain relief from anxiety, depression and related disorders, Xanax alcohol is never to be sought after as mixing xanax and alcohol can unleash tremendous harm to your health. /
