In 1968 Craig Gilbert convinced Mead and his superiors at WNET, the local New York City affiliate of NET that there was an exciting story to be told about the Admiralty Islands in New Guinea, a story that would feature Mead as prominently as the Manus people. Gilbert and his film crew accompanied Mead on her return trip to Manus to document the changes that had occurred on the islands since Mead was first there in 1928.
