Seven award-winning films in which David Attenborough relates the masterpieces of tribal art to the people and places that produced them.
1: Behind the Mask
The remote Dogon country in central Mali still retains much of the mystery and magic of ancient Africa. It is one of the last places left on earth where it is possible to see not only how tribal carvings are made, but why they are made and what part they play in ritual life. Tonight's film sets out to cross the barrier that so often conceals the meaning of tribal art from the European eye.
Attenborough's programmes are a luscious feast for the eye ... a superior series. (SUNDAY TIMES) The ' Civilisation of the jungle.
A splendid production introducing a series of exceptional merit.
