Help wanted with BBC Documentary
We are delighted to hear that the BBC is putting together a documentary series about the new and creative ways people are saying goodbye. This is a fantastic way to get the “Big Conversation” started across the land.
Getting people talking is the most powerful way to spread the word that funerals have changed…and that you really CAN do things your way.
Here’s a message from Rachael at the production company, Wild Pictures:
BBC Documentary Series – get in touch about Celebrations of Life
We’re making a documentary series for the BBC about different approaches to death and ageing and we’d like to hear about funerals as a ‘Celebration of Life’ as we try to see beyond taboos and fears around talking about death. The series will be fronted by the 77-year-old actress Miriam Margoyles, who is passionate about the topic, as she goes on her own journey to learn more.
We are hoping for Miriam to spend time with a person who wants a unique send off for when they’re gone, and is in the process of planning it – or a family who are choosing to honour their loved one in a different and exciting way. Our aim is to explore different ways of thinking and talking about death and show great ways we can celebrate life at the end.
If you’re interested in the idea or want to learn more about the project, please get in touch with me at [email protected]
