Philip Nitschke Interview BBC HARDtalk

BBC Hardtalk

Philip Nitschke Interview BBC HARDtalk was first screened in 2015.

Philip is the founder and director of the pro-euthanasia group Exit International.

Philip says he believes the right to die should be recognised as a fundamental human right, rather than as a medical privilege.

“If we’re going to acknowledge the right to life, we’ve got to be able to recognise the right to dispose of that gift. And that’s a right to death,” he tells HARDtalk‘s Zeinab Badawi.

In this 2015 interview on BBC Hardtalk with Zeinab Badawi, Philip Nitschke discusses euthanasia and assisted suicide.

According to Wikipedia, HardTalk (styled as HARDtalk) is a BBC television and radio programme broadcast on the BBC News Channel, on BBC World News, and on the BBC World Service. HARDtalk is broadcast Monday to Thursday.

The interview teaser is available on the BBC site.
