STEPHEN FRY: GADGET MAN

ABC1, 9.25pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

The morn­ing peak hour rush to work has be­come a lot eas­ier thanks to Stephen Fry ( right) and his trusty gad­gets. The so- called YikeBike, an air- con­di­tioned jacket for the train and a two- seated elec­tric car are among a va­ri­ety of op­tions he road- tests. Fry’s friend, TV and ra­dio pre­sen­ter Jonathan Ross, gives the elec­tric car and some mo­torised roller skates a go in a bid to get to work faster. Fry also trans­forms a taxi into his dream am­phibi­ous ve­hi­cle, James Bond- style. Will he suc­ceed in cross­ing the River Thames in the trans­formed taxi? You’ll have to watch to find out.
