To Life

Length - 08:38
Published - Jun 2017
Keystage(s) - 3, 4 and 5

To Life – Tanwen’s father Gareth died when she was 19 years old. He was suffering from Motor Neurone Disease which was gradually taking away his ability to move, to speak, to swallow. And yet he remained positive until the end, and sincerely wanted Tanwen to continue enjoying life to the full. Tanwen talks about how her father died and how she dealt – and still deals – with her grief. He died before his time, but Tanwen now feels that it was the best thing that could have happened – that he died while he still had his dignity.

A film by Adam Tyler.

Nominated in the Factual category of the BAFTA Children’s Awards 2017.
