My review of the PBS documentary Secrets of the Dead: The Airmen and the Headhunters was posted to Popdose today:
The Airmen and the Headhunters is the most recent entry in the PBS series Secrets of the Dead, which has been running for nine years on the network. The documentary tells the little-known story of U.S. airmen who bailed out of their stricken aircraft over Japanese-occupied Borneo in 1944. On the island, they encountered Dayak tribesmen, also known as the “wild men of Borneo,” who kept them hidden from the Japanese until they could be rescued in 1945. These tribes were best known for hunting the heads of their enemies.popdose.com, Television Review: “Secrets of the Dead: The Airmen and the Headhunters” | Popdose, Nov 2009
