This short film describes the rites and rituals involved in administering the Sacrament of Extreme Unction – also known as the ‘Last Rights’ to people. It shows what preparations should be made in people’s homes for the reception of this sacrament.

Radharc was an independent production company established by Father Joe Dunn, Father Desmond Forristal and other like-minded priests to make programmes for television and non-theatrical exhibition.  Between 1961 and 1996 they made over 400 films in 75 countries on social, political and religious issues.
