The Science Squad is back! From the smallest cells in our body, to the far reaches of outer space, Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, Kathriona Devereux and Jonathan McCrea return to showcase exciting and innovative scientific research currently underway in Ireland.
Norah Casey presents “Way to Go? Death and the Irish” our new documentary which airs on RTE One on Tuesday 1st July at 9.35pm.
Presented by Norah Casey, whose husband Richard died in 2011, this frank and revealing film features first hand experiences of a broad range of people including healthcare professionals and people who are dying speaking openly and honestly about going through what will be the last months of their own lives.
We also hear the thoughts and amusing anecdotes from well-known figures such as actor Gabriel Byrne, broadcasters Marian Finucane and George Hook, and comments from members of the general Irish public.
Blending even tones of light and dark material the programme prompts the question, given its 100% certain to happen to every single one of us, why don’t we want to talk about it?
