This year's Reith lectures

I've been listening to this year's Reith lectures, on the future of medicine (previously broadcast: why do doctors fail? and the century of the system). They're good stuff, and I recommend them.

This week's lecture, is on mortality and death; it resonated strongly for me with what my mother had to go through last year. If you've not been in a position of watching a family member have to get to grips with their own mortality, this programme might help you prepare for it.
