First transmitted in 1960, in this series David Attenborough undertakes an expeditionary tour of the South West Pacific in search of disappearing indigenous customs and rituals.

In Pentecost, David Attenborough marvels at a diving custom performed by male islanders. From a 100ft (30m) tower vantage point platform, male islanders complete death-defying dry land diving stunts.
