I watched it the other night? It was so lovely, they really looked after that girl.

Although I thibnk all those things to ward off evil spirits might have freaked me out more.

me too, I thought it was the most eye opening tv in ages. Heard a bit about tonights on womans hour, it sounds good.

Ta - almost forgot !

I missed the first five minutes.
Can anyone explain where they are and what they're doing there?

OK I have ishoos with this programme now.

Last week was interesting enough but eventually turned off because of the 'I'm finding myself in a tribe and solving all my problems' stuff.

This week it is completely cringeworthy. I'm feeling deeply uncomfortable as well with the concept of someone going in for a short time in this way. When are they going to disillusion the poor guy that she's not sticking around to marry him...(will eat DS nappy if this is not the case and she does). Such potential for misunderstanding in all of this.

And it is such a sanitised portrayal of poor communities' lives.

i don't know, stranger things have happened.

my landlords know two women in Uganda who came from the UK and became tribal wives.

they found what they were looking for there.

wish i could watch it now, bloomin football

expatinscotland Wed 25-Jun-08 21:45:25

and there needs to be more press and reporting on how these peoples' lives are really under threat.

from bio fuels as well as logging.

Wow expat that is fascinating, I am really enjoying this programme - don't think I could actually manage that life after growing up in a western culture though - boars brains anyone?

expatinscotland Wed 25-Jun-08 21:47:09

i takes a certain type of person, but it's not outwith the bounds of the impossible.

lazarou Wed 25-Jun-08 21:48:10

Wasn't there a series on a few months back called 'tribe'?
Was it filmed in the same place?

southeastastra Wed 25-Jun-08 21:51:17

last weeks was really good, i'd love to do that for a month. they seem happier people than we do.

LyraSilvertongue Wed 25-Jun-08 21:55:08

Their life seems so simple and uncomplicated. In a good way.

expatinscotland Wed 25-Jun-08 21:57:30

stranger things have happened, i'm telling you.

lazarou Wed 25-Jun-08 21:57:39

It's had a proper profound effect on that woman hasn't it?

expatinscotland Wed 25-Jun-08 22:00:02

i must be a weirdo, because i think i'd go back and stay with him.

pinkmook Wed 25-Jun-08 22:01:04

God that shot of the guy she "married" walking alone at the end <sobs onto laptop> <hold me> grin

Whizzz Wed 25-Jun-08 22:03:38

lazarou - the Tribe prog was where a group from some remote tribe stayed in London in a swao - as the presented had stayed in their tribe previously. It was another great series

lazarou Wed 25-Jun-08 22:05:59

Aha! Was that the one I'm thinking of then? Definitely saw a bloke living with a tribe for a while
