He is doing the Reith lectures which will be broadcast shortly on the BBC his recent book Being Mortal would be a good place to start a national debate on a 'good death'.

My first begging post to the powers of mumsnet (scraping the floor bow).

Where better to start a national campaign on open discussions on death .

That would be amazing. I love everything he does. Have you read The Checklist manifesto, Meg?

Hi MegCleary,

Ooh, good suggestion.

And seeing as you begged asked so nicely smile, we'll put this to the Powers That Be and let you know what they think.

Did you hear the 'story' about the 3 year old girl this morning on R4 - utterly compelling!!

Sounds fascinating - thanks for flagging. RachelMumsnet (webchat supremo) will see what she can do.
