Channel 4 seeks terminally-ill volunteer to be mummified
Channel 4 looks set to become embroiled in another taste row after advertising for a terminally-ill person to be mummified in a TV documentary.
The body of the candidate selected to be embalmed could then end up being displayed in a museum.
It follows the first televised autopsy, carried out by the controversial German anatomist Dr Gunther von Hagens, and an on-screen assisted suicide.
