Here are some points you could make in your complaint:
Geoff Morris, a disabled man severely affected by multiple sclerosis, has expressed a series of scathing criticisms of the documentary, after watching an advance screening. His observations give grave cause for concern that the documentary:
- presents a fictionalised picture of the Swiss suicide system;
- is strongly biased in favour of this highly controversial suicide process;
- fails to address any objections or alternatives to assisted suicide.
- "shameless propaganda"
- "grossly misleading and unbalanced"
- "Sir Terry and the producers have presented this type of suicide as an enriching, even uplifting choice"
- "a repellent exercise in deceit"
- "untrue and distorted"
- "fails to acknowledge any of the serious concerns about assisted suicide"
- "riddled with myth-making".
- "I'll Die When I Choose", 8 December 2008
- "A Short Stay in Switzerland", January 2009
- "Shaking hands with death", 1 February 2010, also featuring Sir Terry Pratchett
- "Inside Out", BBC West Midlands, 15 February 2010.
