The 2007 show ‘Meet the Natives’ brought five men, including Jimmy Joseph, from Vanuatu to learn about the native culture of… England.

But of course, what the show really teaches us is about their culture. And their religion! Villagers on Tanna believe that the son of god is Prince Philip. For more on that, check the ‘Prince Philip Movement’ Wikipedia entry.

Meet the Natives was directed by Gavin Searle and you can watch it for free (within the UK) on Channel 4’s Catch Up Hub.

“Intriguing documentary that turns traditional anthropology on its head. Five tribesmen from a South Pacific island travel 10,000 miles to observe the natives of a strange and exotic land – Britain.”
