Caitlin Doughty: how we pass into eternity
For thousands of years not much about death has changed. Someone dies, then they are buried or cremated.

We'll travel from the corpse hotels of Tokyo, the mausoleum skyscrapers of Sao Paolo, to the dead body compost center in Seattle, to learn what entrepreneurs around the world are doing the change our ideas around death. And we ask the question, which innovations will be right for Moscow? Or will new innovation come from within Russia itself?
