The Borneo Story: Birds Nest Soup

This is the second in the series of The Borneo Story by Tom Harrisson and Hugh Gibb in the late 1950s courtesy of The Doozer.

This episode documented the collection, sale, processing, cooking, and consumption of edible birds nests from Niah caves. It is notable that 'Birds Nest Soup' won a Grand Prix award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1958.
