Episode number 23 of Series “Faces of culture”.
The most important aspect of any culture is the ability to adapt and change. Change can be revolution, change may walk quietly and speak softly, change may come from inside a culture through a leader of vision. The sources of change may be technological, environmental or ideological. This program looks at good and bad aspects of change, in particular at the cargo cults of New Guinea, colonial India and the jungles of Brazil. Narrated by David Carradine.
