Inside The Human Body – Gerald Dies

This episode was marred in controversy. Radio station switchboards lit up, television networks in overdrive. Some for, some against. The talk on whether to screen this particular segment of BBC’s Inside The Human Body had really struck a nerve with the Aussie public. The Nine Network (Australia) were defiant in their stand, saying they would televise the complete episode and scene in it’s entirety – and that they did.
Gerald, an 84 year old man struck with end stage cancer, gave his permission to BBC to televise his story and allow a worldwide audience watch as he took his final breath.  
You be the judge.
