    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.
