The 12-episode TV series A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die took first place in the television talk show category of New Mexico Press Women’s 2014 Communications Contest. Contest Chair Sherry Robinson presented program host and producer Gail Rubin with an award certificate at today’s meeting of Albuquerque Press Women.
The program now goes on to national level competition in the contest conducted by the National Federation of Press Women.
In addition, the program has been nominated for a Rocky Mountain Regional Emmy Award®.
A Good Goodbye TV presents an educational and entertaining 12-episode series of 25-minute programs with expert interviews on “everything you need to know before you go.”
Host Gail Rubin brings a light touch to a serious subject. Like her award-winning book of the same name, the TV interviews cover a lot of information most folks don’t know about until faced with a death in the family. By planning ahead and having a conversation families can:
- reduce stress at a time of grief
- minimize family conflict
- save money and
- create a meaningful, memorable good goodbye.
Each episode provides valuable insights into funeral planning issues. From pre-need planning to grief counseling, financial issues to the latest trends in death care, these interviews offer eye-opening insights into the party no one wants to plan.
Host Gail Rubin, CT, The Doyenne of Death®, is a death educator (also known as a thanatologist), an author, speaker and Certified Funeral Celebrant. She is one of the pioneers who brought the Death Cafe movement to the United States.
The four-DVD set is available for $49.97 plus shipping. As a special bonus, the book A Good Goodbye is available at half-price to those who order the TV series on DVD. CLICK HERE to order.
