Tribal Wives, Series 2 Episode 4 of 6

Six British women swap their everyday lives for life as tribal wives in some of the most remote communities on earth. Like many women today juggling career, home and family, they feel that something is missing. By spending time in societies where female roles are very different, they hope to find answers that could change their lives.

Becky Camilleri, a PA from London's East End, travels to the idyllic island of Kitava, off the east coast of Papua New Guinea. Becky is successful, talented and beautiful but unlucky in love. A string of failed relationships have knocked her confidence and left her deeply distrustful. Living as a Kitavan woman, Becky struggles with the edicts laid down by her strict tribal 'father' but her island relationships cast light on those back home and throw up some surprising revelations about her past.
