Return to the Biami
Twenty years ago a young
Australian, Susan Cornwell , was one of the first whites - certainly the first white woman - to trek in to the cannibal people of the Biami in Central New Guinea. With her husband, she made an award-winning film which was seen on the BBC in 1972. Last year she returned.
Instead of nose-plugs (and not much else), the Biami people now wear T-shirts; instead of going on the warpath, they now play soccer. They have been converted from cannibalism to Christianity in just 20 years. It has not been a painless or an easy process, indeed, a few of them remain deep in the rainforest unconvinced....

Disappearing Childhood This programme outlines Neil Postman 's thesis that childhood is disappearing as a result of watching television. It goes on to show that children are not passive receivers of their culture but active agents in their own socialisation, and that television plays a part in this. Producer ELEANOR MORRIS (R)
