518    Originally produced by National Film and Sound Archive of 
       Australia in 1964. 
520    Set on the Upper Sepik River in New Guinea, this film 
       records the day-to-day experiences of Kiap Barry Downes as
       he patrols an area that in 1963 when this film was made 
       had only recently been brought under control from 
       headhunters. As well as being a record of the role of the 
       patrol administration, Along the Sepik offers insights 
       into some tribal communities' cultures through depictions 
       such as their spirit houses and traditional 'sing sing' 
       ceremonies. Downes investigates a murder, and the culprit 
       is caught and tried under the Australian flag by a 
       magistrate in a jungle courthouse on the edge of the Sepik
       River. We see the rugged conditions under which these 
       officers and their men operated to bring western law and 
       order to this remote area and some of the impact on the 
       local communities.  An Australian Commonwealth Film Unit
