Host Bruce Parry travels to the Malaysian state of Sarawak, on the island of Borneo, to live with the Penan people.

It is an intensely personal journey for Bruce, who has longed to make this film ever since he travelled through Borneo as a young man.

Bruce Parry journeys to the Bhutanese Himalayas to find some of the highest, and most remote human settlements on earth. He decides to break up his time with the Laya people and their neighbours, the Lunana Tribe.

A strong rift exists between the two communities with cultural differences that extend to dialect, traditional dress and rituals.
The Akie people live as hunter-gatherers on the vast plains of Northern Tanzania. Their Maasai neighbours know the Akie as Iltorobo, a derogatory word which means 'poor people without cattle'. Akie survive on maize they grow, wild honey they collect, and game they hunt. But Bruce comes to learn that since hunters with guns came to Tanzania and Akie lands shrank, all three sources prove hardly adequate to stave off starvation.
Host Bruce Parry sails to the island of Anuta, a tiny, remote tropical outpost in the South Pacific. Due to its extreme remoteness, Anuta is one of the most intact Polynesian cultures, and 250 Anutans inhabit a beautiful island just half a mile wide. They are an ocean-going culture, still capable of navigating great distances by the stars. The men fish with hand lines for sharks and marlin from traditional out-rigger canoes. They dive on the reef for lobster and collect shellfish at low tide. There are two churches on the island and some inhabitants are very devout. The women cultivate every available patch of land with taro, manioc and bananas.
Bruce joins a brigade of Nenets reindeer herders on the remote Yamal Peninsula in Northern Siberia for their annual winter migration.

The Nenets live almost entirely off their reindeer, moving their skin tents every other night as the herd travels to new pastures.
