Should I Marry My Cousin?

TV Times - - Film Guide -

doc­u­men­tary / BBC3

Part of the BBC3 sea­son – Sorry Not Sorry – which cel­e­brates in­di­vid­u­al­ity, this doc­u­men­tary fol­lows 18-year-old Hiba from Brad­ford as she de­bates whether mar­ry­ing one of her cousins is a good op­tion for her fu­ture. Gen­er­a­tions of her fam­ily have mar­ried cousins and 70 per cent of all Bri­tish Pak­ista­nis do the same. Hiba wants to know the pros and cons so she vis­its Pak­istan and meets the two el­i­gi­ble cousins in her fam­ily, talks to rel­a­tives who have done it and looks into the ge­netic risks of mar­ry­ing a rel­a­tive for any fu­ture chil­dren. A well-in­formed and in­tel­li­gent look at a rarely spo­ken about sub­ject.
