Extraordinary Rituals

BBC Studios Natural History Unit Production in partnership with the Open University for BBC Two

On our journey from cradle to grave, we mark the most important moments of our lives with rituals and ceremonies around birth, marriage and death. These life events, and often the emotions around them, are universal. Yet across the globe we perform them in extremely different ways. This three part documentary explores the rich nuances of rituals around the world.
