Series 2 Episode 2 of 6
Linda Plover from Liverpool is going to live as a Tribal Wife with the Babongo in southern Gabon. Linda is haunted by memories of a poverty-stricken childhood and feels an overwhelming sense of bitterness towards her mother. As she struggles with the demands of her new role as sidekick to tough-talking Babongo matriarch, Mama Tito, she begins to see her past from a whole new perspective - and for the first time ever, realises that there are two sides to every story.
Tribal Wives returns to BBC Two for a second series. Six British women swap their everyday lives for life as Tribal Wives in some of the most remote communities on earth. Like many women today juggling career, home and family, they feel that something is missing. By spending time in societies where female roles are very different, they hope to find answers that could change their lives.
