Fry's English Delight: a new series about language on BBC Radio 4

I enjoyed listening to this fascinating new BBC series today: English Delight, Stephen Fry's three-part series about the English language. If you missed it, you can listen again via the BBC iPlayer. It's very interesting especially if you enjoy learning about the origin of words in the English language. And for those of you who don't know who Stephen Fry is: The Adventures of Mr Stephen Fry- official website Stephen Fry Biography (via The British Council contemporarywriters site) Stephen Fry (via IMDb - The Internet Movie Database)


  1. I missed it but will catch up with it during the week via the BBC iPlayer.
    There can't be many people, especially in the UK, who don't know who Stephen Fry is!

  2. It's very good so be sure and listen when you get the chance.

    I agree that most everyone in the UK knows who Stephen Fry is but I'm not so sure about the readers from other countries. He's a very talented man that's for sure!
