Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

We meet the New York artist targeting Islamic State with her drawings. The renowned surgeon and writer Atul Gawande reflects on ‘Being Mortal’ and the death of his father. And an American undertaker describes ancient burial rituals and customs from around the world.

Also, we visit a California church trying to preserve the culture of Coptic Christians. Why the Florida cigar industry is looking over its shoulder at Cuba. And how the fruit and vegetable section of the supermarket looks to a migrant farmworker.
