In 'Conversations with Dad', Jenni's father rings her every Friday night at 6 o'clock. The only problem is: her father's been dead for a little while now. Jacqueline Robinson explores the Jamaican cultural processes which surrounds the death of an individual. In addition, the story is a critique of psychiatry in relation to BME communities within the context of grief.
