While this is not particularly related to Stephen Fry, I really enjoyed Mr Fry's series in America and I thought others might like the project I'm involved in because it too involves a journey around America.
It's called Bus 52 (http://www.bus52.com) - five of us are traveling about the US in a big, blue converted school bus (yes, we're living, working and traveling inside it). We're finding people who are making a difference in their communities, people who are doing something inspiring and innovate to change people's lives. And we're making short documentary videos about them.
We also write articles to accompany the videos and post about life on the road and in the bus.
We're trying to inspire people to help in their own communities while also showing that there are people out there making a difference to counter the doom and gloom that seems omnipresent in the media nowadays.
And if you know someone doing something inspiring near you, please let us know! You can contact us by tweeting us (@bus52), messaging us on G+ (Bus 52) or writing on our Facebook wall (www.facebook.com/bus52), or check out our website for more contact details.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the videos!
