Germany to launch Death Channel

‘A round-the-clock television channel devoted exclusively to ageing, dying and death is to be launched in Germany.

Eos TV will feature documentaries about graveyards, televised obituaries, tips on finding a decent retirement home and even how to install in-house stair lifts.

Wolf Tilmann Schneider, 51, a former TV producer, has joined forces with Germany’s funeral association to launch the 24-hour, seven days a week channel on cable television and the internet. [..]

“It may come as a surprise, but older people really enjoy visiting cemeteries – not just to mourn, but for their peace and quiet,” Mr Schneider said.’
