The dense lowland swamps of New Guinea and are home to some of the last groups of ''uncontacted'' hunter-gatherer tribes still in existence. Former tennis-pro Kelly Woolford now makes a living taking high-paying tourists to visit these remote tribes on the shores of West Papua, the Indonesian half of New Guinea. To some he offers the ultimate adventure, to others he is a master of fakery. In this film, Mark Anstice - author and explorer - journeys with Woolford on one of his expeditions to uncover the truth. Woolford vehemently denies the accusations against him but it is possible that he himself is the victim of an elaborate hoax?

An Indus Films production for BBC4
