Synopsis

This Disneyland episode is essentially a trailer for Disney's upcoming People and Places theatrical short Samoa. Photographers Herbert and Trudi Knapp are shown commisserating with the natives of the titular Polynesian Island, recording such time-honored customs as tapa-cloth weaving and mat-making, as well as the locals' fishing techniques. The remainder of the episode consists of the made-for-TV "People and Places" entry Holland, wherein it is explained that the country's famous dykes not only protect the citizens from floods, but have also helped develop the lush farmlands.
