From the cover: On New Years Day BBC 1 broadcast a programme about Stephen Fry going to Peru to track Paddington Bears roots and more seriously to rescue a Spectacled bear, one of the worlds endangered species. At Easter a follow up programme was shown on BBC 2, they went back, and helped rescue a mate for the young bear they had found on their first trip.
Stephen is now gripped by drawing the worlds attention to these bears and has written a diary of his time in Peru. It is packed with lovely colour pictures of Stephen, bears and Peru, and it is, of course, wildly funny. Stephen Fry is set to become the Diane Fossey of the bear world.
