Abstract:

Episode seven: A poor man shames us all : Explores the alternative views of wealth and society that are exhibited in the lives of tribal cultures and Western societies. This programme takes viewers from a New York ad agency to the Weyewa of Indonesia and the Gabra of Kenya to show how the characteristics of the free market economy contrast with tribal conceptions of wealth through economies of dependence on people, not possessions.

Episode eight: Inventing reality : Have our needs for certainty and objectivity in our lives closed off the magical influence of the natural world? Through a visit with the Huichol of Mexico and a Toronto cancer treatment centre, shows how the certainties of science can combine with natural conceptions of physical disease. Also visit Australian Aborigines to ask the question - is reality something we shape, or does it shape us?
