I rarely post non-technical stuff on this blog. When I do, you can be sure it is something really worth it.
The documentary below this text is touching and sad in a strange way. It spooked through my mind for several days after watching it. I wouldn’t recommend it if you are feeling down at the moment.
Terry Pratchett (yes, Discworld-Terry Pratchett) explores a rather difficult subject: medically assisted death. Having been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2008, Terry considers how he might choose to end his life as his condition progresses. In this moving documentary he meets those who, like him, would like to control the way they die including a men suffering from degenerative conditions and he is with a British motor neurone sufferer as he carries out an assisted death at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland.
