Episode number 1 of Series “Faces of culture”.
Every man and woman has a story to tell which is finally the story of us all. The basic tenet of modern anthropology is that people are fundamentally alike but different and that all cultures are valid approaches to answering the question of who and what we are. Unfortunately this belief has not always been held, resulting in genocide, as in the case of the Tasmanian Aborigines. Of the two major strands of anthropology - physical and cultural, this series is primarily concerned with cultural anthropology. Narrated by David Carradine.
