Let Our Dad Die | Dispatches

Seven years ago Tony Nicklinson had a catastrophic stroke, which left him utterly paralysed. He can only communicate via a computer controlled by his eyes. Tony Nicklinson wants to die, but he cannot kill himself without help, and anyone who helped him would be committing murder. On the eve of a historic and controversial legal bid to demand the right to be killed, he tells his story and comes face to face with his critics.
