Award for OU documentary

A documentary film commissioned jointly by the Open University and the BBC, and for which Derek Matravers was Academic Adviser, has won the Best Documentary on a Contemporary Theme (Domestic) at the prestigious Grierson Trust awards. The jury chair described How To Die: Simon’s Choice as ‘a deeply moving’ film that made ‘a valuable contribution to the debates surrounding these big issues’. The film was shown on BBC2 earlier this year.
