Makers of Series About Amazon Tribe Accused Of "Fakery"

From the Guardian: charges that a television series about an Amazonian tribe altered scenes and interviews in order to create an unfavorable image of the tribe. An anthropologist who has studied the tribal members and a son of missionaries who worked with the tribe, both of whom speak the tribe's language fluently, say the six-part series  Mark & Olly: Living with the Machigenga is inaccurate. The BBC, which aired the Cicada Productions series in 2010 and obtained it from another outlet, says it does not plan to show Mark & Olly: Living with the Machigenga again.
