British Film Institute Interviews "Stephen Fry in Conversation with Alan Yentob" 24 October 2022: Episode 1 on BBC Four 11

At the BFI Imax, in the context of a TV festival leading up to the centennial of the BBC and before a sell-out audience, Alan Yentob engages Stephen Fry – writer, presenter, comedian, actor – in a wide-ranging discussion of the deeply personal challenges he has faced, and the professional achievements he has enjoyed, in his extraordinary life so far, from his jail time as a teenager convicted of credit card theft to his four-decade relationship with the BBC.

Fry reflects on his high-achieving Jewish family roots, his love of language, his life-changing times at Cambridge University, discovering the work of Oscar Wilde, the realisation he was gay, the extraordinary thrill of falling in love, and the mental health challenges he has bravely and publicly confronted.

Some of the TV highlights of his career are screened and discussed, including a comedy classic with Hugh Laurie and Rowan Atkinson.
