A young New Yorker’s extraordinary journey into the culture and way of life of one of the original peoples of Africa. It is also the story of the Hadzabe, a unique and ancient culture under siege. It’s an adventure programme but also an unromanticised look at the effects of the first world on Africa. The programme follows five Hadza companions who epitomise the dilemma. They are young men tied to the land and their way of life by thousands of years of culture but their lives are changing. At one and the same time, they both resent it and are tempted by it.
