Abstract: A documentary film of the life a Khoikhoi woman who was taken from South Africa in 1810 and exhibited as a freak across Britain. Other important examples of this more recent type of work include Thaiss on religion in the urban bazaar, Beeman on popular forms of entertainment and the role of the media, and both Beeman and Bateson on aspects of national character. Thus, when in a sample of fifty societies with “exclusive matrilineal descent with exogamy” only 42 per cent conformed to the expected pattern, Murdock nevertheless claims that this correlation “tends to occur” and the theorem is thereby “conclusively validated” (Murdock 1949, pp. 166–167).
