In America, the number of people who believe in God is in decline – yet religion still has a hold over us. How could science and reason replace it?

In this thought-provoking documentary series, evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins asks what happens if we leave religion behind. He explores ideas on the soul, the afterlife, sin and God’s purpose that have shaped our thinking for centuries.
