01Lost In Shangri-la: Escape From A Hidden World - A True Story20110509

"Colonel Prossen searched for ways to ease the stress among his staff. On the 13th May 1945 he had arranged the most sought after prize, one certain to boost morale - a trip to Shangri-la. Margaret was at her desk when the invitation came..."

The members of Base G camp in Hollandia, Dutch New Guinea, are given time out to fly over this wonderful hidden valley, where time stands still. The only inhabitants are the 'Stone Age' Yali and Dani tribes-people, who populate the jungle swathes. The flight in a plane called 'The Gremlin Special' should be a real eye-opener, but then something goes badly wrong...

1. This tale of a forgotten land is abridged in five

parts by Katrin Williams, and we first learn how the plane

is forced down in empty, verdant nowhere. But are there

any survivors?
