JUDAISM: THE CHOSEN PEOPLE | 51 Minutes
What is it that makes a Jew? In New York, Elie Wiesel, author and survivor of the concentration camps, tries to define it, In London, Nobert Brainin and the Amadeus Quartet carry the argument further, both in words and music. Inevitably the search takes us to Jerusalem, where Dr. Pinchas Peli, tenth generation rabbi and fourth generation Jerusalem, it explains the meaning of prayer and acts as our guide through the religious schools, the synagogues and a museum for the survivors of the Holocaust. We also see Western (Wailing) Wall, a place of prayer and pilgrimage sacred to the Jewish people. 
 
RELGION IN INDONESIA: THE WAY OF THE ANCESTORS | 51 Minutes
There are almost 200 million people scattered across the world who belong to tribal religions that are local, exclusive and frequency animist – i.e., they believe that inanimate objects and natural phenomena process a soul. Though no single group can be chosen as typical, this episode is devoted to primal religion-that of the Torajas who live in a mountain fortress on an Indonesian island.
