Stephen Fry: The BBC and the future of Public Service Broadcasting

BBC started a lecture series about the future of public service broadcasting some weeks ago. The first lecture was given by Sir David Attenborough. This one is given by Stephen Fry, comedian and broadcaster. If you don’t know him, he had a comedy show with Hugh Laurie (House M.D.), called "A Bit of Fry and Laurie". Even if you’re not a familiar with the BBC, it’s worth watching:

J.K. Rowling: The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination (Commencement speech at Harvard, 2008)

Steve Jobs’ commencement speech at Stanford was one of the best speeches I have seen so far. This commencement speech by Joanne K. Rowling at Harvard in 2008 is on a par.

It seems that those who experienced major setbacks in their life can deliver the best speeches to graduates.
