I don't know whether this is the video you are looking for. We purchased a
copy from Films for the Humanities (# 4004):

The Lost tribe (60 min.) Written and produced by Bettina Lerner.
Princeton, NJ : Films for the Humanities & Sciences, c1993. Originally
produced by BBC-TV in 1989.
Summary:
This program examines the controversial study of the tiny Tasaday tribe
discovered in the remote Philippine rain forest in 1971. Initially hailed
as the anthropological find of the century, many reputable anthropologists
have declared it a hoax, a plot of the regime of Ferdinand Marcos and his
Minister for Tribal Affairs. Arguments are presented on both sides of this
intriguing issue.
