This week JP’s smarter brother comes to stay to tell him that it’s time to knuckle down. Josie meanwhile, has become obsessed with New Tricks.



First Contact: Lost Tribe of the Amazon

Channel 4



In 2014 one of the last tribes that had had no contact with the outside world emerged from the Amazon near the Brazil-Peru border.

A team of anthropologists return with them to their tribe to discover what drew them out of isolation and what this means for the indigenous way of life.

The show offers a unique insight into the way man has developed; one man says “Now we have seen clothes, and we have clothes to wear, we are ashamed to be naked.”
