Dining With Cannibals
In Dining with Cannibals, directed by Osca Humphreys, Piers looks at one of mankind’s ultimate taboos: cannibalism. He treks into the rain forest of Papua New Guinea in order to find tribe members who have eaten human flesh. He meets with members of the once-feared Biami tribe and witnesses their ritual techniques.
Dining with Cannibals is out now on National Geographic Channel worldwide. Some of the highlights can be viewed below:

Q: That leather bag you carry around – where did you get it?
A: I bought it from Saddleback Leather and it is one of the best things I have ever spent money on. Their bags *are* expensive – but I wish I’d bought one years ago and not wasted my money buying cheaper ones that have broken and been thrown away and are currently rotting in landfill…
I’ve since been in touch with the good people at Saddleback and I was not surprised to learn that as well as making their products as sturdy and serviceable as possible – they also support a range of lovely charitable enterprises. I am happy to support them – go on over to their website and buy yourself something that lasts.
