Description:Features a visit to New Guinea, where citizens speak a bewildering 717 languages and are "trying like hell to get into the twentieth century." Viewers are given a brief but fascinating look at a world where children are not named until they are six months old because of the astonishingly high mortality rate, where men and women live in separate houses, and where pigs are legal tender. "Go there for the pure adventure and spirit of traveling," Guss says, "for this may be your last glimpse of primitive man."
