This documentary throws light on the disease of manic depression and how it effects the life of people who are hit by this disease. Stephen Fry explains the potentially devastating condition of individuals that are striken with this disease which is nearly about two percent of the population.

The documentary starts with Stephen on an emotional journey meeting sufferers of this disease and discussing about mood swings, bipolar disorder. He is also invited by Celebrities like Carrie Fisher and Richard Dreyfuss to link their stories. To add to it, Stephen also meets people who are trying their efforts to deal with this illness at work and home. He also meets people who are studying manic depression in an effort to control it.

Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive is ideally a mesmerizing, touching and a very entertaining Emmy Award- winning programme.

  1. Worked that out 20 years ago and That’s the reasons that I dislike the Banking and financial instruments industry…. Greed..Greed for something that isn’t really Reall!A Big Pool full of sharks and out predators…herding the public and then a feeding frenzie.

    “Anti-racists” say there’s a RACE problem. They say it’ll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and “assimilate” to get a brown mixture.They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.If I object to my own genocide these “anti-racists” say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.They say they’re anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    some of the blame for falls in the market could be pointed on the Quants because they use formulas of uncertainties along with former models on the market to make their money. What they cant be sure of is crashes, and if they cant see them they cant prepare for them.

    This is a small part of the bigger picture. Wall Street are hiring mathematicians and physicists to predict future values of CDOs. There is nothing wrong with their mathematical model; it’s not the reason why there was a meltdown in 2008, but it was because what Wall Street people did with the CDOs; there was a huge fraud. Watch “Inside Job” an award winning documentary that explains what was the cause of the 2008 global financial crisis. What’s surprising is that it can be avoided.

    Mathematicians and Physicists working in Wall-street. They are trying the best way to make money. Putting it very simply. It is one of the reason for the financial crises. They can contribute to society in a better way but… Some of them lift after the crash like this guy in this doc. WATCH “Money,Power,& Wall-street” FRONTLINE, on PBS.ORG Bad Mortgages are not the only reason for this horror,like @malaki9332 put it.

  6. malaki9332 says:

    AKA, using a computer to replicate a trader. It gets a bad stigma because it executes these trades in a fraction of a millisecond (thousands of buy and sell orders), and it’s so competitive that physical distance from the exchange is the difference between a profit and loss. There’s more, but I honestly don’t feel like writing a paper.

For the novice trader and not only!If you have any questions, please write!With respect,Vladimir Anatolievichgoodzarabotok.mybb.ruVladimir-Anatolevich08@yandex.­ru

    I think you misunderstood the documentary. It was clearly stated that it was the misuse of quantitative mathematical equations by Wall Street that made the crisis so monolithic. The mathematics cannot account for much of the reality it is trying to represent – this was mentioned by quants in the film.

  9. ruivirtual says:

    lol. that is not a law at all, not a scientific one at least. and is not “deduced” by any premises in a logical sensus. at best its a petition of principle…anyway does somebody know the song at 43:45 or what? and its not the nutcracker ish..

  10. tropicbum62 says:

    I THINK I GET IT ? YOU IGNORE GODS NATURAL LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE AND TRY TO WORK THE EQUATION TO MAKE MONEY FROM NOTHING. THE PEOPLE AT THE TOP MAKE MONEY BY CLEVER MANIPULATION OF MONIES / STOCKS/ GOLD ETC COMMODITIES AND LIKE MAGICIANS INCREASE THE HYPOTHETICAL VALUE/ WHICH IN THIS ARTIFICIAL MATRIX WE HAVE CREATED OVER THE EARTH /SEEMS REAL/ SOON WE WILL EAT THEIR EQUATIONS.

    I HATE ALL LYING CONIVING SCOUNDRELS OF THE STOCK MARKET TRADING AND THIEVES WHO STEAL EVERYDAY FROM HARD WORKERS WHO GIVE IN TO THE DISHONESTY OF LYING CHEATING BROKERS FAKE COMPANIES AND REAL ONES TOO WHO METHODICALY SAP THE BLOOD OUT OF FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS EVERYDAY; BURN IN HELL THE LOT OF YOU!

    @gcglasser There is another saying: The poor man was walking through the desert with a bag of water on his back trying to find the city. In the middle of the desert he met “Rich” arab who was sitting on tones of gold bars waiting to get some water. Poor man says: I will give you a bottle of water if you give me half of your gold. Arab says: are you crazy, absolutely not. The poor man left, and Arab man die from lack of water.

  13. kessass83 says:

    @gcglasser Yap. Create a shortage of something and people will give anything what they left with that is not in shortage yet or it is not necessity for survival. Create a shortage in water, and people will give you everything: money, mansions, or even country for the drop of water.

  14. At Cowboy Dream Investing, we have a team of quants that are working hard to make YOU money, not some hedgefund.

Go look us up on Google or check out our YouTube video.

  15. yes i agree at the top of this powerful corporation the most intelligent are the one WORKING FOR the company. Its sad that either you be perfect or you get replace, trust me you can easily get replace no matter how smart you are. After that its all 99% greed 1% image, and continue to play with the scale, and when the other side flop. The market crash and you have someone to bail it out and this all happen again. To the point of self-destruction!

    There are very useful natural economy models, that define the necessary change for surviving a growth crisis. It’s to realize that growth is actually a construction process, powered by its own profits. So… the solution to a growth system turning itself into a tower of Babel by overreaching its own ability to manage the complications involved, is to use the system’s profits for something better. It’s not the kind of thing social thinkers like, but necessary. synapse9-dot-com/signals

  17. I don’t know how to heal the financial system, but from a bird’s eye view I feel like we have enough smart makroeconomics and other people like political scientists who actually could produce some high quality solutions. The problem is our political system is extremely sluggish, different parties fighting over and over until the next crisis appears. We have to make public sector as efficient als private sector, or the private sector will take over the public one.

    i really hate my job as a programmer after hearing that guy at 46:48, i’m missing the real world so much, so much has been wasted, more than 12 hrs a day just starring at the screen and cracking my head over some ridiculous algorithm requested by the customer

  19. eclechtic says:

    @tpwatsonThe circular-referencing (along with the spelling and use of split infinitives) in your post is not only laughable, but comes close to warranting no response at all. Yet, the arrogance exuding from your first two words irked me. The point which you sought to refute was, in short, that quantifying risk IS productive. You’re assertion that it is in fact NOT productive, was…profound. Thank you. If I could only make sense of the remaining drivel…

  20. tpwatson says:

    @SalsaTiger83Absolutely incorrect. There is nothing wrong with making attempts to quantify things, but to largely re-balance society on an almost entirely non-productive industry based on paper shuffling isn’t smart or adventacious. Money lending can come from various areas; a bank, a friend, a venture capitalists or even the state. Doesn’t appear they did a great job the last time they attempted at quantifying risk for themselves or their firms. Less the bailouts they are bankrupt.
