Stephen Fry’s Planet Word

What is language? Is communication the same as language? How have we evolved the ability to form and use language and what sets us apart from other species?

In this new BBC documentary series, Stephen Fry explores our origins of language. A good link between the sciences and languages (perhaps even history) as areas of knowledge in TOK.
