Exploring the rituals of religions and tribes around the world
Anglican priest Peter Owen Jones embarks on an epic year-long journey to experience 80 rituals practiced by different faiths across six continents.
This ambitious eight-part BBC documentary follows Peter around the globe as he witnesses and occasionally takes part in astonishing rites carried out by some of the world’s major religions, as well as lesser-known sects, tribes and new religious movements.
Confronting rituals that sometimes surprise him – and with rarely seen footage of customs and ceremonies – Owen Jones takes us on a journey of discovery, exploring humanity’s fascination with the divine.
