Karen meets a community elder from the Waorani tribe in Ecuador
Karen meets a community elder
from the Waorani tribe in

Ecuador's Waorani tribe are the hosts to the latest British woman to immerse herself in tribal living, in the series that provides a unique and intimate insight into the lives of women in tribes across the world, and a life-changing experience for the Western women involved.


Deep in the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle is one of the world's most isolated tribes – the Waorani. Once known as "the savages", they have a fearsome reputation. But behind this formidable façade is a way of life unchanged for centuries.


Living with them for nearly a month is 46-year-old Karen. Ten years ago, the mother of two walked out of a turbulent marriage. Now she is a successful businesswoman and a workaholic – but she's invested so much time in her work and her children that she's lost sight of just who she is.


She wholeheartedly embraces Waorani life as she joins in an exhausting boar hunt in the jungle, bathes in piranha-infested rivers, helps to build the chief's hut, plants manioc and forms a close friendship with the village's champion weaver.


The tribe is impressed by Karen's can-do approach to life. This is a woman who doesn't think twice about plucking a wild turkey or gutting a boar. It's not long before they honour her with a special Waorani name, Bopo, which means tall, strong tree.


And the Waorani believe they may have found Karen what they think she really needs ... a Waorani husband.




BBC FOUR Wednesday 25 June 2008
Jews – The Next Generation Ep 2/3
Wednesday 25 June
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

The psychological inheritance of the Holocaust is explored in the second episode in Vanessa Engle's series which gives a remarkable and unprecedented insight into Jewish life in Britain today.


The Holocaust may have taken place over half a century ago, but the children of refugees and survivors still find themselves carrying the inherited trauma today. This film is a reflection on the second-generation experience, exploring how the past informs the present and how history lives on inside people's heads.


Using highly personal interviews with eight contributors, this film examines the different ways in which they are affected by their family histories. One woman carries the same name as the six-year-old daughter her mother lost in the camps. One man's immigrant father never disclosed his Jewishness, and when he discovered the truth about his identity after his parents' death, he found himself on a journey to rediscover the religion his father had renounced. Another woman is so haunted by her mother's mental collapse that she has relocated to Vienna to try to unearth the source of her mother's trauma.


The film comprises a set of unique and moving stories, but what all the contributors have in common is a sense of rootlessness and not belonging, as well as a deep-seated feeling that being Jewish is a dangerous thing to be.
