I havenít heard anything about that episode of "survivor" shot in Vanuatu, let along watching it. But what I read in the newspapers few days back might have negative implication upon some, especially those from outside the Oceania region.
It was said in the advert in one of the local newspapers that Vanuatu is well-known for her BLACK MAGIC and CANNIBALISM among others..
While its true that people from all over the world might fall for the breath taking scene that most our Pacific Island countries have, it might fall short to the promotion of our good name overseas especially when Black Magic and Cannibalism among other things comes with it.
Its sad that SURVIVOR fail to erase those bad names and barbarisms acts of Noah's time from their scripts and give a good name to the country which needs positive image from the outside world...Now what are investors going to say before taking any step to invest in the region?? Cannibals in there, lets go to somewhere else...
Survey after survey, it reveals that the mass media has a very strong influence on society, thus the implication of their negligence to portray Vanuatu as that will only add weight to the most peoples belief in the Discovery Channel that Cannibalism is and still very much alive in the pacific.
Maybe am wrong, but am with students from all over the world... 120 countries around the world and some questions are just uncalled for.... especially degrading questions that most have thru watching Discovery Channel... png students you should have come across some if not then many..
Thank you very Much..
PS: The next episod, lets pray that they give a good name and come up with some new ideas about how to help the island nations... apart from the beautiful beaches and ladies (???) we have lots in the Caribbeans... sorry..
