[edit] Information

Explorer Bruce Parry spends time living with different tribes around the world.

[edit] Adi

The Adi are justly proud of their history. The Himalayan hill tribe's reputation as fierce warriors, and the inhospitable terrain in which they live, have ensured the survival of Adi culture for centuries. But change is coming fast as technology, ideas - and beliefs - from outside start to take hold in even the most remote Adi villages.

[edit] Suri

In the plains of south-western Ethiopia where the Suri herd their highly-prized cattle, competition for land is always fierce and armed raids an everyday reality.

[edit] Kombai

The dense forests of Papua are a rich and complicated mosaic of different tribal groups. Far from the coast, at the foothills of the highlands, from an aircraft the land seems like mile after mile of empty barren swamp. But this is where the Kombai have stayed hidden from the outside world for generations, pursuing their ancient way of life as hunter-gatherers.

[edit] Babongo

The Babongo of Gabon used to be known, derogatively, as pygmies. They're still treated as second-class citizens by their neighbours. But their expertise and knowledge of the forests is unique and their use of Iboga, a powerful hallucinogenic which lies at the heart of Babongo culture, makes them famous throughout Gabon.

[edit] Darhad

The Mongolian nomads of the Darhad valley are some of the most self-sufficient people in the world. Across the steppes and mountains of the Darhad Valley, they move huge herds of sheep, goats, cattle, yaks and camels, relying on their tough little horses. It's a harsh and spectacular place, and a gruelling life.

[edit] Sanema

In the largest jungle in the world lives a tribe whose traditional way of life is slowly fading away. The age-old way of life for the Sanema is changing and ancient balances between man and nature are thrown awry.

[edit] Cannibals and Crampons (extra)

Bruce Parry and Mark Anstice walk for 77 days through the uncharted jungles of Irian Jaya, to attempt to climb a remote mountain. On the way, they stumble across a tribe of cannibals who have never seen outsiders before.
