SCANDINAVIA: David Tennant Appears In Fry's Planet Word On BBC Nordic This Evening



Viewers in the BBC Nordic region will be able to see David Tennant's guest appearance on Fry's Planet Word on BBC Earth this evening. This fifth and final part of Stephen Fry's exploration of language airs tonight from 18.55.


Fry’s Planet Word
Stephen Fry explores language, coming to understand how we learn it, write it and sometimes lose it, and why it defines us

Episode 5: The Power And The Glory
Stephen Fry celebrates storytelling. It has been with us as long as language itself and as a species, we love to tell our stories. This desire to both entertain and explain has resulted in the flowering of language to describe every aspect of the human condition.
Stephen asks just what makes a good story and why some writers just do it better. He reveals what stories make him shiver with joy or, conversely, shudder with horror. Among the guests Shakespearean actors Simon Russell Beale, David Tennant, Brian Blessed and Mark Rylance give their take on Hamlet and laud the bard as the blue planet's supreme writer. 

The episode is repeated later tonight at 23.40 and on Monday 10th August at 09.15 and 13.50, also on BBC Earth. 

Fry's Planet Word originally aired on BBC One in 2011.
