Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive is a 2006 two-part television documentary directed by Ross Wilson and featuring British actor and comedian Stephen Fry. It explores the effects of living with bipolar disorder on other celebrities and members of the public. Fry himself suffers from a milder and less severe version of the illness called cyclothymia.[1] It won an Emmy Award for Best Documentary at the 35th International Emmys in 2007.[2]

Celebrities featured[edit]

The segment with Robbie Williams was in the original broadcast on BBC, but was cut from further airings as well as the DVD release, likely due to copyrights issues with the musical inserts.
