Untold Australia: The Secret Life of Death

On tonight’s Untold Australia showcase is a documentary The Secret Life of Death which centres around the business of running a funeral parlour.

This one-off doco is produced by both Mint Pictures & Tangerine Pictures.

The Secret Life of Death reveals a sneak peek inside one of the oldest family-run funeral homes in Australia – Walter Carter Funerals, which has been based in Bondi Junction since the 1870s. Told through the eyes of two of its youngest and most recent female recruits – Jasmine Cameron, a funeral director, and Amber Coote, the mortuary manager – this observational documentary lifts the lid on one of the last great taboos: death.

8:30pm tonight on SBS.
