Summary *Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that the following program contains images and voices of people who have died* In this five part series, Compass goes behind the scenes of Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish secular funerals. We enter privileged territory to share religious rites and rituals practised in 21st century Australia. Death is the journey we all eventually take. But how do we carry our loved ones on their final journey? How do we honour them in death? And how do we grieve? The rites and rituals performed in Australia today are determined by our culture, values and beliefs. We cross over into privileged territory to stand beside closest kin and share their intimate moments, to get a picture of death, as it's done in 21st century Australia. In this episode a Facebook memorial for a young man, a wife's ashes scattered in the sea, a tribal Tiwi ceremony, grieving for those lost without trace and a loved one's remains gifted to science.
