Karl Pilkington tries his Twix coffin for size.

During a visit to Ghana, he shops for a customised coffin, before attending his first-ever funeral and the accompanying parade.

He also meets members of a community in the Philippines who live and work with the deceased, is taught how to cry and deal with grief by a professional mourner in Taiwan, and returns to Britain where he creates a memorial.

The Moaning of Life: Death is scheduled for broadcast tonight (30 November) at 21.02 on BBC BRIT (DStv channel 120), with repeat showings on Wednesday 2 December at 00.06, Saturday 5 December at 22.00 and Monday 7 December at 01.25.
