Bridget Christie: Mortal

Bridget’s 2021 radio series, Mortal, covers ‘Birth’, ‘Life’, ‘Death’ and ‘The Afterlife’.

Like many of us forced to work from home during lockdown, Bridget has recorded this series herself in her house, and in her local park, on a pre-sanitised recording device sent to her in the post. Batteries weren’t included. She had to buy them all herself.

In a collection of informative, personal and absurd recordings, she confronts the difficult questions most of us spend our lives avoiding – all whilst being interrupted by cats, chores, children, foxes and a plumber.

“Do twins share a soul or do they get one each?”, “Why don’t we bury our placentas and plant a tree on top of them?” and “Who’s blocked the toilet again?”

If you are mortal, then this is the show for you.

Mortal is currently still available on the BBC iPlayer
