David Attenborough meets a local tribe of cannibals (video)

John’s post the other day with Sir David Attenborough’s encounter with a blind rhino reminded me of this 1975 interview when Attenborough talked about his close encounter with a tribe of cannibals. He’s 86 years old, and has been doing nature programs for 60 years on the BBC.

One of his earliest filming programs probably had a bit more excitement then he had hoped for, but thankfully it all worked out in the end. His response to a charging, armed tribe in Papua New Guinea was something you could only expect from the British.
