Critical Illness Cover explained by Dr Marius Barnard
 
03:32
Dr Marius Barnard was a member of the pioneering medical team that performed the world's first human heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1967 with his brother Christiaan. He spent a large part of his career working to improve cardiac surgery behind the iron curtain and globally, specialising in heart surgery for newborn babies Recognising that due to medical advances his patients were surviving illnesses they would previously have died from, Marius witnessed first hand the financial impact this survival had on them and their family. He sought a solution to help future patients and worked towards an insurance product that paid out not on death, but on the diagnosis of a particular illness. With the help of Crusader Life Insurance in South Africa, the first policy was launched in 1983.

27 years of the Scottish Widow - Interview 2014
 
02:19
Hear the women behind the cloak reflect on the iconic character. The new Scottish Widow, Amber Martinez meets with former Scottish Widows Deborah Moore, Amanda Lamb and Hayley Hunt. Deborah Moore originated the role in 1986 in the first television advert to feature the Widow. Directed by David Bailey, the campaign raised the profile of Scottish Widows as a contemporary company for life assurance, pensions, investments and savings. The face of the Widow for eight years, Deborah later appeared in the Bond movie Die Another Day and the BBC series Sherlock. Amanda Lamb took over the role in 1994 during a period of immense change in the financial services industry. She portrayed the Widow through a decade that included nine TV advertising campaigns, before carving out a successful career as a television presenter on A Place in the Sun and You Deserve this House. Amanda passed the famous cloak to Hayley Hunt in 2005, who brought a different, vibrant, and energetic look to the Scottish Widow. During Hayley's tenure as the Widow she has married her childhood sweetheart and become a mother of three.

Scottish Widows Retirement Report 2017 – Mindful Retirement
 
03:21
A clinical experiment, designed by behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings, observed 54 men and women aged between 35 and 45 from across the UK as they watched films illustrating two opposing retirement situations. The first film painted a happy picture of retirement while the second film drove home the financial hardship and unhappiness of poverty in later life. Wired up to oximeters that measured their pulse rates, scientists monitored signs of relaxation and stress, including facial movements and body language. The group was then asked to share their feelings and whether the videos would make them revise their retirement savings.
