Loss & Longing

Series II | Episode 5

Grief is a natural response to loss. It is the emotional suffering one feels when something or someone the individual loves is taken away.

It could be the loss of a possession, a house, an animal perhaps, or a loved one.

Loss, and specifically death are part of our existence, we will all experience it, but we don’t talk about it.

Liz Clements lost her father this year. She told her story to Think Tank in the hope that we can start to be more open about such a prevalent part of the human experience. Her words speak volumes as she opens up about the aftermath of losing such an inspirational and beloved person in her life.

With thanks to our storyteller from this episode, Liz Clements, for telling one of the most powerful and emotive stories this series. As mentioned at the start, Liz is a journalist for the BBC. Her fathers decision to educate her in the Welsh Language was certainly beneficial as you can often hear Liz on Radio Cymru, the BBC’s welsh language radio station.
