Have A Good Death

Have a good death
 

We've produced a range of films to tie-in with a one off documentary on BBC 2 about changing the way we care for the dying called How To Have A Good Death. We asked our contributors to send in films about their thoughts on death and the experiences they've had of losing someone close to them.

All these films and more are being broadcast on Your Stories (BBCi page 5670) throughout the day on Thursday 30th March.
