is finally out on DVD! It originally aired in what, 2007? (Although UK residents have been able to get it since February.) Even if you don't have bipolar disorder (manic depression), chances are that you know someone that does. The award-winning documentary also talks about mental illness in general, along with interviews with Carrie Fisher, Robbie Williams and Rick Stein.
Also a must for Stephen Fry fans.
US residents may have to order from UK DVD sites. Be sure to use ones that take PayPal.
Real satisfying brain food.

Well, if you;ve ever doe anything stupid like forgetting to put your pants on before leaving the house or going to work on your day off, take heart:
at least you're not as stupid as me.
I bought the Stephen Fry DVD from a UK seller and discovered that UK DVDs won't play on American DVD players.

Ah-HA! The DVD will play on Microsoft Windows Media Player 11.
Carry on, then.

Robbie Williams was interviews because he has major depression, not manic depression. Unfortunately, I guess due to copyright problems, his interview was cut out of the DVD.
The soundtrack is also completely different.
The BBC keeps getting YouTube to yank anyone's clip of "The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive", so who knows how long those clips will stay up.
