Intriguing documentary that turns traditional anthropology on its head. Five tribesmen from a South Pacific island travel 10,000 miles to observe the natives of a strange and exotic land - Britain.
The ambassadors find many of the things they see in Norfolk very strange
The islanders head off to stay with Manchester couple Julie and Ray for a taste of British urban life. Visiting their first British city is an exciting and eye-opening experience for the islanders but they are saddened to discover how many homeless people are living on the streets. How, they ask, is it possible for a city with so much wealth to contain people with no home or family to shelter them?
The ambassadors travel to Northumberland to stay at Chillingham Castle, and then head further north. After a run-in with some snow they head to London, which they find full of people who don't smile and seem to be rushing everywhere. But in London they receive a letter inviting them to Windsor to meet HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip. For the five ambassadors, this is the fulfilment of all their hopes.
