Heaven. Where Is It? How Do We Get There?

First Aired: December 20, 2005

“Heaven: Where Is It? How Do We Get There?” This road map to the afterlife, as viewed by various religions, also examines contrarian views of skeptics and neutral views of scientists. “Is [heaven] an actual place, or a myth made up to give life meaning?” asks host Barbara Walters, who interviews Catholic, Protestant, Islamic and Jewish clergy (including Rabbi Jackie Mason), the Dalai Lama, Buddhist Richard Gere, and people who say they have had near-death experiences, including Elizabeth Taylor.
