Seven award-winning films in which David Attenborough relates the masterpieces of tribal art to the people and places that produced them.
6: Man Blong Custom
Among the islands of the South West Pacific, missionary influence has greatly changed the lives of people who were once head-hunters and cannibals.
But even today there exist remote tribal villages which still retain their own traditions and beliefs. The bush people of Malekula, in the New Hebrides, still use the skulls of the dead to make memorial sculptures, which they entertain with spirit-puppets in their spectacular funeral ceremonies. In the Solomons, a powerful movement has arisen, dedicated to the rejection of Christianity and the revival of tribal custom. And, once again, the black war canoe may be seen speeding across a lagoon, its tall prow adorned with pearl and cowrie shells, and, just above the water, the staring face of a guardian spirit.

A fortnightly look at the big screen at home and abroad: news, views and interviews presented by Gavin Millar
John Wayne's latest film, The Shootist, the story of the last days of a dying gunfighter, is just about to go on general release. It is the work of Don Siegel, who also directed Charley Varrick, Coogan's Bluff, Dirty Harry and many other violent thrillers. In Hollywood, Siegel talks about the problems of the director who is typecast by his success in one specialised genre.
'I'm not a violent man... There are many other things that happen in our lives other than crime and violence, and I think as long as we do them entertainingly then what's wrong with doing them?' (Don Siegel)
Based on the novels by ROBERT GRAVES
