Death brings bureaucracy - at a time when we are least equipped to deal with it.
Martyn Lewis explores what has to be done in the first few days after a death, including the planning of a funeral. Many people see funerals as something to be endured, but they are an important part of the grieving process and can be made occasions that will become good memories. Director Moira Kean
Series producer Helen Alexander

The Last Resort
Sheila has to take the decision whether or not to have a brain operation for her depression. She knows there are no guarantees it will work - but it might.
More than 20 years ago she was eagerly expecting the birth of a child. The birth was normal but Sheila suffered a severe postnatal depression which eventually progressed to a seemingly incurable deep depression. After many years of enduring every form of treatment, none of which worked, Sheila was offered the last resort - surgery on her brain.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
