    Ring of Fire: An Indonesian Odyssey - The Ten Year Voyage of Brothers Lorne and Lawrence Blair - Travel Video. Ring of Fire: An Indonesian Odyssey - The Ten Year Voyage of Brothers Lorne and Lawrence Blair - Travel Video.
    Set of 5 Movies on 3 DVD Discs. Originally seen by millions of public television viewers, this exciting series documents the ten-year voyage of two filmmakers, brothers Lorne and Lawrence Blair, through the world's largest and least known archipelago - the exotic, mysterious islands of Indonesia. These islands form a chain of active volcanoes that arc down and around into the Pacific to form the 'Ring of Fire.' 4 Hours. The Blair Brothers sailed with pirates aboard their black-sailed schooners in search of the Bird of Paradise, struggled through rapids and deep jungles searching for elusive nomadic tribes, witnessed veiled forms of human sacrifice and found themselves drawn into ten years of danger and discovery in a magical land where ancient myths still flourish. Their intimate encounters with the vanishing masters of tribal wisdom were to lead them from a physical adventure, into a deeper, more personal quest of self-discovery. "An absolutely fabulous video series." AL THE SPICE ISLANDS: Following in the footsteps of the great 19th Century naturalist, Alfred Russell Wallace, the Blair Brothers embark with the piratical Bugis tribe on a 2000 mile journey through the Spice Islands in search of the golden-tailed Bird of Paradise, the symbol of Eternal Life. Aboard a black-sailed schooner they encounter storms and doldrums, sultans and transvestite priests, pearl-divers and python-hunters, before finally reaching the Aru Islands, close to New Guinea. Their odyssey with the Bugis tribe (who gave the word 'bogeyman' to the English language) starts the Blairs on the inner journey which leads them ever deeper into the forgotten wisdom of the island peoples. The Blairs sail to Komodo and film the giant, carnivorous lizards of the island whose tiny human population is descended from the people banished by the neighboring sultans of Bima to eke out their living on "Dragon Island." On the island of Sumba, they witness a veiled form of human sacrifice by equestrian warriors. Master weavers of magical textiles, the Sumbanese still live by ancient beliefs, ritually keeping the balance between the "Merapu" gods of the sky above and "Nyali," the Sea Goddess of the world below. The brothers journey 50,000 years into the past to live with Asmat headhunters in New Guinea. They eventually reach Bali where they build a home in a village of farmers, artists and mystics. In the shadow of Java's constantly erupting volcanoes, the Blairs descend from the crater of the newly erupted "Child of Krakatoa" and encounter a world of medieval courts, mystical shadow puppet plays, forgers of magical swords, healers with supernatural powers and whole communities ruled by the powerful "Spirit of the South Seas." Back in Bali, they meet such sages as the master artist Nyoman Lempad, who was to die a conscious death on the day of his choosing at the age of 116. And among the Toraja people of the Celebes highlands, they share in the massive funeral rites of the last king of the tribe which believes its ancestors came from the stars in sky ships. For eight-hundred miles, through untamed and uncharted rainforest, the Blairs seek the last of the nomadic Punan Dyaks, the free-roving masters of the interior, the "dream wandering" tribe believed to no longer exist. The brothers struggle inwards, plagued by torrential rain, quicksand, leaches and virulent insects. Eventually, they find and live with the Punan Dyaks where they are initiated into the spiritual mysteries of the "dream wanderers." Lorne and Lawrence join the dance of the hornbill and get tattooed with the symbol of "Aping" - the Tree of All Life. This, their shaman explains to them, they will now bear, wherever they may get to amongst the tribes of man, as a reminder that all life forms are part of a single tree.

    Bali: A Life in the Balance - Travel Video.
    VHS/NTSC. Encounter Video. Plain and simple, Bali spells magic. The magic of rich cultural traditions practiced by a people who really believe in them. Here is life at its most expressive, with festivals, ceremonies, dancers, craftsmen and artisans in abundance. One can innocently become wrapped up in a temple festival, a procession, a noisy wedding party or an exuberant cremation almost by chance. And behind this rich tapestry of religious expression stand a friendly and outgoing people who welcome your participating and companionship. Where is Bali? Somewhere in the South Pacific? Most think it is, but Bali is in Indonesia, over 5500 miles from Tahiti! The relaxed rhythms of perennial rice growing have afforded the people ample leisure time to perfect an intricate Hindu-influenced way of live seen nowhere else in the world. In Bali, every living moment is a sacrament to the millions of good and evil Gods who reside in every niche and corner of this tiny island state. Bali is not a primitive culture or a lost world. Some would say it is overrun with tourists desiring to surf its legendary waters or climb its holy mountains. Others come for spiritual adventure, immersing themselves in Bali's enigmatic religious life. Somehow, the island's culture has managed to absorb huge doses of Western influence without being absorbed in the process. One wonders how long this can continue. The secret of the Balinese lies in the concept of balance on the physical, emotional and spiritual plane. Today that balance has grown ever so fragile and may soon disappear. Join Rick Ray as he explores "Bali: Life in the Balance. 80 minutes ~ "In Stock" (hard to find) ~

    Dani - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. New Guinea is situated close to the former Irian Jay that is now known as West Papua. It seems to be a hidden place, as though the land itself wants to retain its age old mystique. It was only in the 1930's that American millionaire, Richard Archibold, discovered this until then unknown and untouched world. The Baliem Valley is not only West Papua's high valley it is also the home of a unique indigenous people, the Dani. In the dense and virtually impenetrable forest regions of the Baliem Valley and its surrounding highlands there are numerous tribes but it is the Dani who are the most populated tribe of the region. At the beginning of the 1980's Wamena was only a small village occupied by the Dani. However, the regular air service to New Guinea's main harbour and capital city has now speeded up its development. Cement, corrugated iron and motor vehicles have since been flown into the rapidly expanding city. Today, Wamena has a population of around twelve thousand. The most striking and characteristic attire of the men is a tubular phalocrypt, or penis covering, made of dried gourd that in the language of the Dani is known as a `koteka'. Most of their traditional dress consists of magnificent feathers and plants and a strip of material worn around their neck is meant to protect them from evil spirits. Despite the discovery of their existence in the twentieth century the simple lifestyle of the Dani of West Papua continues to be intriguing, mysterious and totally fascinating.

    Prambanan Java, Indonesia - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Indonesia's largest Hindu holy place is Prambanan, in Central Java, a religious treasure that dates back to the 9th century and originally included 232 temples. An earthquake struck and for many centuries the buildings lay buried beneath the ground until, in1918, archaeologists began to reconstruct the main temples. The individual sections of the Candi Lorojongrang were rebuilt like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, which made the reconstruction process particularly laborious, but in 1953 the rebuilding of the central temples was completed. The Candi Siva Temple rises 47 metres into the sky and is the tallest in Prambanan and contains four inner chambers that face the four points of the compass. The main Hindu god, Shiva, is depicted in the southern chamber, whilst the sculpture of his reborn wife, Durga, is located within the temple's northern chamber. Thankfully, due to the hard work and determination of many archaeologists, the symbolic meaning of the old Hindu god, Shiva, God of Destruction and Renewal, is well on its way to being fully realised.

    Sundae - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. Active volcanoes and creatures reminiscent of the dinosaurs, the tiny Sundae Islands are like something from a bygone age. Indeed, this group of islands situated east of the Indonesian island of Java remained undiscovered for a surprising number of years. The village of Lamalera is situated in the south of the island, an area that has little fertile land that is suitable for agriculture. The people depend entirely on fishing and they are renowned for the fact that they are the last whale hunters of the subtropics that continue to hunt with harpoons and the first records of the region's stout-hearted whale hunters date back to the seventeenth century. Due to the development of more accurate and lethal weapons, plus well organised ships, some species of whale are now almost extinct. But on the island of Lembata the people do not hunt the whale for commercial reasons but because it is the basis of their survival as the lava stone on the island makes agriculture almost impossible. The oil that was produced by the whale fat was once an important fuel and was used to illuminate entire cities! The gut of a sperm whale contains a valuable substance, ambra. Up to four hundred kilograms of this have been found in a single sperm whale and it was once used for the production of perfume, although fresh ambra has an unpleasant smell. The constant battle with the sharks and sperm whales off the coast of Lembatas is not without risk but the men have no choice for there is no other way of hunting in this region. They continue the heritage of their legendary ancestors and age old traditions are still held in high esteem in this extraordinary village. The active volcanoes and legendary lizards of Komodo as well as the existence of the courageous whale hunters of the Sunda are truly evocative of a colourful and dramatic bygone age.
