im glad he made this programme,his symptoms describe me to a t,i was not aware of this disorder and just thought i had severe depressed stages for which the doctor tried to pump me full of anti-depressants,it confirms doctors would rather sling you some drugs than actually diagnose the real problem. thankyou Mr Fry

The first comment is not a good review. Social class is not the issue here - awareness is. To the above comment the issues of medication are very tricky and its about finding what is good for you and very often if you are not an in-patient, its a case of being aware of your symptons and really monitoring if they are improving or not and the side-effects of the drugs. If you feel they are not good for you its up to you to go back to your doctor and say or consult a second opinion. It was a really insightful program and managed to pin down the chaotic experience that Bipolar often is for those suffering with it. It explained Bipolar well to the average person who has never experienced what it is to be Bipolar and doesnt know anything about it. It was clear and articulate and looked at hypermania, mania, and the depressive episodes. Stephen Fry interviewed a varied amount of people from different walks of life and ages. The program emphasised the need for others to be aware of the effects of mental illness both in social terms and personal/subjective terms. I am happy Stephen Fry spoke so openly and honestly about his illness that was publically disclosed in the newspapers and I am sure this will please his fans to know more about him. I think it allows those with the Bipolar illness to be more open about the effects of such an illness and how different they are from those who do not have a mental illness. Its great to see people speak up! Thanks Stephen, keep up the good work!

Stephen confuses his disorder with the coruption he suffered at Uppingham School. I read an article on www.jtolkien.com that reveals much about Stephen.

Threats made to Tolkien relatives

AN IT technician has been charged with making threats of violence and extortion to relatives of Lord of the Rings author JRR Tolkien.

Christopher Carrie, 63 from Solihull and author of www.jtolkien.com, will stand trial later this year on four counts of threatening behaviour and one count of extortion. A further allegation of a breach of the peace has been dropped.

Mr Carrie successfully sued the Catholic Church in 2001 for abuse he allegedly suffered whilst within their care. Although the church did not admit liability, Mr Carrie was reportedly paid a five figure sum.

A spokesperson for the Tolkien family declined to comment.

Stephen Fry is a self centered conceited wanker. So smug he's lost himself up his own arse. Get off this twittering bullshit and go away.
