Lodestar Above: Island of Fire, The Dancers of Mount Yasur

Welcome to the heart of the Pacific Ocean's Ring of Fire. The island of Tanna is in the southern (and seldom-visited) corner of the archipelago which forms the country of Vanuatu. The Tannese live under the explosive and glowing fires of Mount Yasur - one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. It has been erupting continuously for 800 years. Sit back and witness a culture that is virtually unchanged from when Captain Cook dropped by 230 years ago.
