Episode 2: Attenborough's Passion Project: The Lost Gods of Easter Island

Summary

The second of David Attenborough's `passion project' films in The Lost Gods of Easter Island, which originally aired in 2000. The programme traces the origins of a carved figure David bought in New York in the 1980s. Seeking to determine the item's origins, he treks from Russia to Australia, from England to the Pacific, and finally ends up on Easter Island - home of the famous Moai heads - and discovers that he may have purchased what was originally a gift to Captain Cook from the islanders.
