The Two Worlds of the Innu
In the villages of Davis inlet, an isolated island outpost off the Labrador coast, alcoholism, sexual abuse and suicide are rife. Last year alone one in three adults tried to kill themselves. In
January 1993 six children attempted suicide.
This documentary in the series that looks at unfamiliar cultures shows how the resettlement villages - set up by the Canadian government in the 60s for the native Indian Innu people - have failed in their aim to turn the Innu into "modern"
Canadians. All that has been achieved is the near destruction of the traditional Innu culture.
In the film two Innu families talk about their personal tragedies, the intense pressure to change their way of life and their decision to return to the traditional hunting grounds of the interior to rediscover their lost customs, their identity and their dignity. Producer Ken Kirby
Editor Alan Bookbinder
Featuring the successful smuggler, the unsuccessful encyclopedia salesman, and the motionless cat sketch.
The first of four newly commissioned documentaries in this season marking 25 years of the Troubles observes them through the eyes of serving British soldiers.
Originally seen (as intended) as protectors of the Catholic minority, the soldiers' relationship with that community turned irreparably sour in 1971, when a military curfew was imposed on the Lower Falls. "I didn't consider myself a foreign invader in a foreign country - nor did they until the curfew," says one soldier.
"Then the tea stopped. That was the weekend the IRA went to war."
Soldiers speak with unprecedented frankness to journalist Peter Taylor , an experienced observer of the Troubles, about a world where provocation and frustration can lead to a bitter and brutal reaction: "If it'safter dark and he's a known IRA 'player', he's gonna get a serious kicking."
Fear of death is a daily emotion: nearly 650 soldiers have been killed in a quarter of a century. But one soldier sums up their shared attitude: "Everything you do that stops the terrorists is worth it. If we save one life, we've achieved something." Producer Ken Kirby
