    We just watched Part II of a really interesting program on bipolar. It was done by Stephen Fry, British comedian and person with bipolar disorder. It was enlightening, he covered a range of presentations as well as different therapies. He interviewed a number of other people with bipolar (including Richard Dreyfuss) and discussed how they coped. Some of the coping techniques were very interesting and original. He covered CBT as well as medication, among other treatments.

    Here is a link to the TV program.

    I found a link on IMDB -

    IN the comments on IMDB, someone has tried to get a copy and can't find one. You may have more luck, or it might even be aired in your area. If it is, watch it, tape it.

    If you paste the full title into Google between double quote marks, you might get a youtube link.
