Horse yodelling with the Amish

Have you ever seen an Amish man yodelling to a horse? Newsnight's Justin Rowlatt was invited to stay with an Amish family in Indiana. A famously closed community - it is highly unusual for them to welcome outsiders into their homes.

Justin gets a unique insight into their lives characterised by simple living, plain dress, resistance to adopting many modern conveniences, and - perhaps uniquely to this Amish family - horse yodelling.

Watch Justin Rowlatt's film on the Amish in full on Newsnight on Wednesday 15 July 2009 at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
