Large, nocturnal and secretive: the badger is rarely seen. But thanks to Eric Ashby's enormous patience and imagination he has captured the badger's private life on film. He has filmed badgers throughout the year not only by day but also by night; not only above but also below ground.
Filmed for the first time underground in an ingeniously constructed sett, wild badgers have groomed, slept and even fought for possession of the chamber within a few feet of Eric's hidden camera.

HRH The Prince of Wales, Patron of the Royal Anthropological Institute presents Face Values
A series of seven programmes with people from Bali, Brazil, California, Malta, Tanzania and Britain.
For the wedding of Saleita binti Athmani on Chole Island, Tanzania, there are three days of preparation followed by an all-night dance and the singing of bawdy love songs. Saleita's marriage has been arranged for her, money has changed hands and still there is a strong chance that the marriage win end in divorce a few years later. The ceremony itself is conducted entirety by men, whilst women remain behind the wedding house cooking food which will be first served to the men.
At face value this is a classic ease of wives being treated as chattels but this comparison of five foreign societies shows how impossible it is to describe the action of others in the language of your own culture.
