Tribal Wives: Series 2

Six British women swap their everyday lives for life as Tribal Wives in some of the most remote communities on earth. Like many women today juggling career, home and family, they feel that something is missing. By spending time in societies where female roles are very different they hope to find answers that could change their lives. The second series features a broad range of communities, crossing continents from jungle to mountain plateau to idyllic island paradise. The series includes tribes such as the Hamar of Ethiopia and the Babongo of Gabon, whose lives have remained largely unchanged for centuries; but also features tribes whose lifestyles straddle the ancient and modern worlds, such as the Yörük of southern Turkey and the Rarámuri of Mexico's Copper Canyon. Each of the Tribal Wives spends almost a month away from home, living with their new families and immersing themselves fully into their new culture - working, eating and sleeping exactly as the other tribal women. As well as the visitor's insights into her hosts way of life and customs, the series reflects the tribe's perceptions of the newcomer and through this, our Western lifestyles

Living in a one-roomed tent with a Yoruk family of seven - including the father's two wives - proves quite a challenge for Charlie, but ultimately forces her to confront some home truths.

Although bright, bubbly and self-assured on the surface, Michelle suffers from a crippling lack of self-confidence, which she feels is hampering her chances of meeting a partner. Initially frustrated with the simplicity of life with the tribe, as events unfold Michelle realises that life with the Rarámuri is far from uncomplicated.
