No, I don't agree with this.
"The death of an 84-year-old man is to be broadcast on BBC One next month as part of a new series about the life cycle of the human body."
A) Deaths are rarely 'peaceful' so this will give a false impression of how people die - it'll give credence to the fact that we all die peacefully and go to heaven.
B) Death is a pretty sacred thing (don't you think?). To know someone is dead is good enough for me, I don't want to see it actually happen.
