Default PBS Documentary, "The Undertaking"

The Emmy awarded documentary, "The Undertaking" by PBS Frontline will be rebroadcasted nationwide on Tuesday, December 11 at 10 PM EST.

Mark your calendars! It's a really good documentary about funeral service, and a good funeral home & family

Will see if this is on in the UK. I live in a funeral home

There was an interesting Welsh documentary on recently, but it was Welsh language so you'd need subtitles. It was on s4c, I doubt you could get that in the US either...

It's about funeral service

Quote:
Thomas Lynch, 58, is a writer and a poet. He's also a funeral director in a small town in central Michigan where he and his family have cared for the dead -- and the living -- for three generations. For the first time, Lynch agreed to allow cameras inside Lynch & Sons, giving FRONTLINE producers Miri Navasky and Karen O'Connor rare, behind-the-scenes access -- from funeral arrangements to the embalming room -- to the Lynches' world for this film, The Undertaking.

In his critically acclaimed book, The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade, excerpted in the film, Lynch chronicles a life spent in the presence of the dead. "We have in some ways become estranged from death and the dead," Lynch believes. "We're among the first couple of generations for whom the presence of the dead at their own funerals has become optional. And I see that as probably not good news for the culture at large."
