Man 'to Die' on TV

Man's final moments to be broadcast

The moment a dying man makes his "final breath" is being broadcast in a new science series.

The second episode of Inside The Human Body, to be aired on BBC1 next month, sees 84-year-old Gerald die at home surrounded by his family.

Presenter Michael Mosley acknowledged that some people would criticise the broadcast, but he said it was important not to "shy away from talking about death and, when it's warranted, showing it."

He said: "I know that there are those who feel that showing a human death on television is wrong, whatever the circumstances.

"Although I respect this point of view I think there is a case to be made for filming a peaceful, natural death - a view shared by many who work closely with the dying."

When Gerald, who was suffering from advanced cancer, was approached about being filmed in November last year, he said he hoped it would help others.

"I don't want to die, but pretty evidently unless some miracle happens, I ain't going to be here very long... I'm not frightened," he said.

He died on January 1 this year, at home and surrounded by family, after vowing to see in 2011.

Good, it's stupid to think of death as being taboo when it's going to happen to us all

Re: Man 'to Die' on TV

I read about this, if I was terminally ill I would want to die with dignity, the guy with cancer is extremely brave and unselfish in my view.
