This is a taster video I made for the BBC to sell an idea for a docu-soap about Carl Marlow, a renegade Geordie undertaker who runs a alternative funeral business called Go As You Please. He recently helped a group of Newcastle based Hindus cremate the body of an illegal immigrant on a funeral pyre, the first of its kind in Britain since the practice was outlawed in 1934. Unfortunately the series never got commissioned, which is a pity because he's a very compelling character who wants to change the way we all think about death.
