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 leather meets brass in a motorcycle send-off for a Vietnam Vet and a traditional Chinese-Buddhist funeral - Australian style.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Compass Executive Producer: Rose Hesp
