I watched the 2 DVDs of Fry’s Planet Word before Christmas, and enjoyed every minute of it. I’m a fan of Stephen Fry, currently reading one of his autobiographies at the moment as well (the one called The Fry Chronicles).
In Fry’s Planet Word Stephen Fry takes us on a very personal journey into a world of words, spoken and written. I didn’t take notes as I was watching, so I will point out a few ministories which stayed with me after watching the five-part series (291 mins.). Stories such as the father teaching his son to use Klingon, how to sign Hitler in the American and the German Sign Language, stories about Homer’s and James Joyce’s Ulysses, and others.
