Human Sacrifice

Wednesdays From 17th March, 10.00pm

Human Sacrifice is a brand new threepart series that examines this terrifying practice through the lenses of history, science, forensics, and psychology. How did ancient peoples regard human sacrifice? What were the principal reasons behind it? Was there a common vein leading to it that ran through each religion? And most disturbingly, we’ll explore why human sacrifice seems to be re-appearing, not only in Third World villages, but in industrialized cities around the globe.
