The secrets of the controversial embalming techniques used to make the dead appear to be still alive, and how the practice has made a resurgence in recent years having been so popular in Victorian times. John Harris, who works for one of the UK's oldest and most respected funeral directors, travels to Puerto Rico to find out from families why they celebrated the passing of their loved ones in such an unusual way, and meets Felix, who shows him how he kept the eyes of tragic murder victim Fernando Diaz Beato open.
