Watch traditions documentaries on RTD to discover incredible, bizarre, and disturbing practices, rituals and customs from different parts of the world. Customs and rituals are a major part of any community’s identity. Some of them may be as old as the society that practices them.  Learn about the disappearing tradition of Albanian women turning into sworn virgins, or the Afghan practice of bacha posh, when girls take on boys’ roles. Traditions documentaries also shed light on the practice of bacha, or dancing boys in Afghanistan, or the Indian custom of isolating widows, or force-feeding of brides in Mauritania.
