The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive (BBC)
Secret Life of the Manic Depression was a two- part documentary of a personal journey of self-discovery for actor Stephen Fry. Fry confronts his medical condition by consulting experts and others who have suffered the disorder (including Richard Dreyfuss and Carrie Fisher).
Off the back of the series BBC Learning produced a self-help book titled The Secret Life of Manic Depression, in conjunction with people with lived experience of Bipolar and with the British Medical Association. The booklet was distributed via Primary Care Services (GP Surgeries) across England, Wales, Scotland and NI.
I was the development producer and campaign manager on this project for BBC Learning and won a Royal Television Society Education award for this campaign in 2006.
