Open to Question tonight is a man who can claim descent from Hiawatha - the embodiment of the idea of the noble savage that shaped so much of the early American
Dream. Jo-Ag-Quis-Ho, whose white name is Oren Lyons , is a chief of the Iroquois
Confederacy, and an Indian activist who refuses to carry a US passport.
After two centuries of repression, exploitation, and in some cases virtual genocide, is the American
Indian now simply a decaying echo of a great past? Or will they succeed in reclaiming the lands that their ancestors were driven from?

A series by GRAHAM REID McCabe's Wall
Stationed in the countryside of County Derry, in charge of the kitchen of a small officers' mess, Cpl Will Pryce is all for a peaceful life - preferably left alone to listen to records of his beloved Welsh choirs. A less peaceful atmosphere pervades the farmhouse where old Sean McCabe , diehard Republican, lives with daughter Mary and is being visited by his son and daughter-in-law - a world of no concern to Will, until a chance encounter makes it so.

Tonight Arena presents a unique interview with one of the great figures of 20th-century literature,
Jean Genet. His first novel, Our Lady of the Flowers, written in prison, moved Jean-Paul Sartre to declare him a saint and martyr. Genet's plays, including The Maids and The Balcony, revolutionised post-war theatre, and his novels, explicit and passionate celebrations of homosexual love, were widely banned.
Now 75, Genet remains a self-declared outcast, unrepentant about his past as a thief and prostitute, still questioning society's expectations. In an impassioned outburst, he denounces even the interview itself as 'a piece of bad theatre' and turns the tables on his interrogators, asking them some uncomfortable Questions of his own.
