A Year in Tibet 2/5 - Three Husbands and a Wedding (BBC)

Documentary series following a year in the life of the society living in and around the Tibetan town of Gyantse. It's autumn and everyone is pulling together to get in the harvest, as Dundan worries about hailstones flattening his crops. The local government has installed guns to disperse the clouds and this has put the shaman Tseden, who used to protect the fields with spells, out of a job. Tseden is also helping a local family to arrange their daughter's wedding.
