Description

Tim Bullamore presents The Last Word: Life and death as seen from the obituary writer’s desk, looking at the history and development of obituary writing.

Starting in the 1600s and working through to the present day, hear entertaining anecdotes about writing obituaries, including the things that can (and do) go wrong (such as mistakenly publishing obituaries of people who are not yet dead).
