WILD AT HEART: HOW ONE WOMAN AND HER HUSBAND LIVE OUT IN THE WOODS

For seven years, Miriam Lancewood and her husband Peter have lived a nomadic life in the New Zealand bush. She is the hunter and he is the cook.

I’d expected Miriam to look bedraggled, maybe with a couple of teeth missing, but she’s immaculate and smiling broadly, her teeth shiny white (she usually cleans them with ash); no dandruff, legs shaven, she smells of campfire. She is powerfully built; almost the double of Sarah Connor from The Terminator. A Dutch Sarah Connor – she was born in Holland. Her husband, Peter, proudly tells me she could beat most men in a fight: “Miriam is the hunter and I’m the cook. She’s much stronger than me. Women are better shots,” he says. “And they’re more careful,” adds Miriam. “They are less driven by trophy hunting. They have less of a need to prove themselves.”


“Sneak Peek: The Lost Tapes: LA Riots”

25 years since all hell broke loose in LA. I fear scenes like these are about to become more common place on American streets in the years ahead.

The streets of Los Angeles erupted into chaos on April 29, 1992, after four white LAPD officers were acquitted for beating African American motorist Rodney King. Over the next six days, television and radio reports, home video, and police footage captured the turmoil that led to 54 deaths, nearly 12,000 arrests, and over $1 billion in damages. Using these recordings, we take a look at one of the biggest periods of civil unrest in American history as if it were all unfolding in real time.
