In 1938 three Australian patrol officers - Jim Taylor, John Black and Pat Walsh - set off on an epic journey into the highlands of Papua New Guinea. Their purpose: to make contact with 'stone age' tribes who knew nothing of the outside world and explain to them that their lives were about to undergo incredible change.

Fifty years later, Jim’s daughter Meg retraced her father’s steps and met people who remembered the day the patrol arrived. Meg’s observations are combined with excerpts from her father’s journal to provide a personal and poetic narrative about an extraordinary meeting of cultures.

(1989, 55 minutes) A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with the National Geographic Society.
