To The Best Of Our Knowledge: Death (A Five-Part Series): The Reckoning
We will present a rich, cross-cultural perspective on death and dying, speaking with a wide range of guests - from medical professionals and morticians to historians, anthropologists, religious thinkers and writers. Our series will also feature highly-produced personal segments, including one story that follows a terminally-ill man over the course of a year - from the months leading up to his death, to his “green” burial.
We’ll chart the emerging “death movement” - from death cafes and death dinners to innovative schools that now talk openly about death with their students. A therapist/ hospice worker will reflect on her own experience of talking to people who are dying. How can we prepare for our own death and for the deaths of our loved ones?
