An interesting trailer for an upcoming six-part documentary series:
The history of the world is full of prophecies and portents, but we tend to feel, especially in the West, that all this belongs to the past. In Asia, however, the occult is still invoked to explain current events at least as often as economics or, until recently, ideology. In the Far East what we call superstition is still very much part of every day life. Astrology, Chiromancy, reading a persons face, feet, tea leaves or a palm leaf can play a substantial role in a persons life and public affairs.
…A Fortune Teller Told Me, presented by Brendan McDonnell, documents his journey into the world of astrology, numerology, naadi, palm reading, tarot and every imaginable method of divination in an effort to discover if the future can be predicted.
