First Out of Africa: The Totally Isolated Tribe of the Andaman



There are still people in this world who have no idea that civilization exists.

On remote islands in the Bay of Bengal live mysterious tribes. The five-foot high black skinned Andaman islanders are rumoured by sailors to be cannibals. Their origins are mysterious, but this film reveals how modern DNA analysis suggests that these ancient people have close links to Africa, from where they have been separated for 100,000 years
