In this episode of Horizon, Dr. Kevin Fong looks at the issue of death itself.

For most people, it seems that death is not something they are afraid of, but we are worried about the process of dying itself. Dr. Fong examines the claims that we may be over-medicalising death and also meets with people in the final stages of the lives to get a better understanding of a “meaningful” death.

We Need to Talk about Death is on BBC Two at 21.00.
