BBC film about Anuta to be shown on TV
The 3rd episode of the latest ‘Tribe’ series takes Bruce Parry to the tiny island of Anuta, sister island to Tikopia. This program was filmed by the BBC on Anuta last year. Read about their first research visit in Klaus’ report below.
It will be shown on BBC2 on Tuesday 4th September at 9pm UK time. You can also read about it on the BBC website:
