Rate this:
In the second of this two-part series, comedian Billy Connelly continues his exploration of how humans approach death as he nears that end. He returns to Glasgow to visit the necropolis of his childhood and speculates how the dead are honored with Jazz Funerals in New Orleans, Day of the Dead in Mexico, with memorial tattoos, and the funeral traditions in Ghana and Bali. He hears about the possibility of a 1,000 year lifetime and how cadavers are used and respected at the UCSF anatomy lab. At Eloise Woods in Texas, Connelly discovers an environmentally friendly burial ground for families. Connelly meets an artist and former radical whose serene acceptance of approaching death in hospice impresses and informs Connelly's own attitudes.
