The makers of a documentary on assisted suicide have defended their decision to film a man at the moment of his death.
Motor neurone disease patient Craig Ewert, 59, from Harrogate, died in Switzerland, having been helped by the controversial charity Dignitas.
Sky Television said its film gave an “educated insight into the decisions some people have to make”.
However, campaign group Care Not Killing said the show was a “cynical attempt to boost television ratings”.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown told the Commons he was personally opposed to assisted suicide.
Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions, he said: “I believe that it is necessary to ensure that there is never a case in this country where a sick or elderly person feels under pressure to agree to an assisted death or somehow feels it is the expected thing to do. FROM THE TODAY PROGRAMME
