Because an episode set on the one of the most dangerous and war torn places on earth wasn’t controversial enough, next week’s Body Hack delves in the fascinating world of Eastern African tribes.

Ethiopia is home to some of the most vibrant tribes and unique social structures on the planet. Tribes that have been glued together over thousands of years by incredible and often brutal rituals.

Here, family, community and a strong sense of belonging is not just a thing to have, it’s a critical part of survival and something that seems to have been lost in the west. But for some, particularly the women, this ‘belonging’ comes at an unbelievable and dangerous cost.

From the brutal, bloody ritual of male stick fighting in order to attract a wife to the extraordinary whipping of female family members - this episode challenges our concepts of sacrifice, tradition and love.

Todd Sampson’s Body Hack is an Essential Media production for Network 10 with production investment from Screen Australia in association with Create NSW. 


Todd Sampson’s Body Hack - Tuesday 2 July At 8.40pm on 10 And WIN Networks.
