Could it be that near death experiences (NDE) come from beyond the brain? Could consciousness continue after the brain has stopped functioning? This is what controversial new research is daring to suggest. By focusing on the memories of cardiac arrest survivors during their unconscious period, some scientists have eliminated many of the sceptic''s explanations and are coming astonishingly close to thinking the unthinkable - that mind and brain are not the same thing and that NDE are providing the proof. This programme is a fascinating investigation into the latest research and the extraordinary conclusions reached. Includes accounts of real NDE experiences and scientific explanations from both the sceptics and the scientists behind these astonishing new claims.
