Media experience

Stephanie was featured by interview in the BBC 1 documentary Between Life and Death, broadcast in 2011. This was a Ppovocative documentary following the doctors who can now interrupt, and even reverse, the process of death. Filmed over six months in the country's leading brain injury unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, it follows the journey of a man who, by only moving his eyes, is eventually asked if he wants to live or die. Two other families are also plunged into the most ethically difficult decision in modern medicine.
