Exploring remote communities

In this three-part series, Will documents how the rapidly changing world is affecting these traditional close-knit communities.

In episode one, Will joins the Bajau spear fishermen of Indonesia, who live in stilted villages out at sea. Episode two sees Will visit the small village of Lamalera, the Coral Triangle’s most notorious whale-hunting community.

In episode three, he explores the astonishing cultures of the Kula Ring, a group of tiny island communities who have survived thanks to a unique network of trade called Kula.
