Award winning documentary maker, David Peat, tackles the last taboo - dying.

The Marie Curie Hospice in North Glasgow is pioneering care at home for the dying. 75% of us would like to die at home, very few of us do.

David follows key staff who are working to make it possible for terminally ill people not just to die at home, but to live life to the full to the very end. They provide not just medical care but emotional support, working with families and friends to nurture relationships and make this tender moment as happy as possible.
