Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die (2011) – In Choosing to Die on BBC2, the author Sir Terry Pratchett went to Switzerland to witness the assisted suicide of a British man with motor neurone disease.  It was not just Sir Terry who watched Peter Smedley’s final moments – the viewer had a front-row seat as well.

The organisation Dignitas provides this end of life service in a building surrounded by industrial units – where foreigners are helped to die. Swiss citizens can drink the lethal dose they provide in their own homes.
