Papua New Guinea: Bush Knives and Black Magic

Channel 4: Unreported World

Unreported World travels to Papua New Guniea, where reporter Ramita Navai and director Katherine Churcher investigate the brutal phenomenon of witch hunting that is undergoing a dramatic resurgence in one of the most isolated places on earth.


Victims are burnt at the stake; stoned; slashed and even buried alive. Nearly all of the victims are women, and their attackers are rarely punished.


"A tantalisingly brief visit to the wild, mountainous interior of a country where, we are told ominously, witch-hunts are undergoing a massive resurgence"
- The Observer


"You don't see this on Tribe"
- The Times
