Poppa Bilong All: The Autobiography of a Stone Age Chief. Narrated by Roger Delgado
Born about 70 years ago, Wamp Wan became one of the most powerful of New Guinea's Stone Age chiefs. Then with apparent ease he was able to adapt Stone Age cunning to 20th century sophistication. Wamp co-operated with the film unit in this reconstruction of his life-story and provided the basis of the narration.
