Must watch: Fry’s Planet Word

It’s finally here! Stephen Fry’s documentary on language. I saw him tweet about it numerous times and when I went to see him in June, he had just gotten back from a trip that would be used for this documentary. So, I knew this would be coming soon. It is a 5-part documentary in which Fry investigates language and all its aspects.

I’ve only seen the first episode so far, but for a language lover like me, this documentary is like one big chocolate pie that I cannot get enough of and I’m pretty sure some of you are interested in this too. That is why I am posting the youtube links to all 5 episodes. Enjoy!

Episode 1: Babel

Episode 2: Identity

Episode 3: Uses & abuses

Episode 4: Spreading the Word (on the written word)

Episode 5: The Power and the Glory (on storytelling)

    I knew you’d love this. I’ve already watched it on BBC iPlayer. Uses and abuses is hilarious with Fry and Blessed doing the experiment.

      I can’t watch Iplayer. Not available outside the UK and BBC has blocked most of the videos I posted. Will have to download it from somewhere to see the rest! Can’t wait for this weekend, cuz that’s when I’ll probs watch it.

        I know I will. It’s about language AND if features Stephen Fry! Two of my favorite things combined into one!
