This written report acts as a supporting document to the technical work produced for the dissertation by practice by radio. This radio documentary tells the story of my deceased parents’ life. The purpose of the product is to capture that story so that it can be preserved. It documents their early life, their meeting, their family life, and then their deaths. The story is narrated by me but primarily told by my two aunts, one my Dad’s sister and one my Mam’s, both called Mary (“The Marys”). Through telling a deeply personal story, the product aims to relate to the audience by focusing on the universal themes of loss, grief, and bereavement. It’s about how we cope in the aftermath of death, and the power of storytelling.
