Arena presents the extraordinary story of Tim Page, war photographer and Vietnam legend-a tale first told in MICHAEL HERR'S celebrated book about Vietnam, Dispatches. ,
'People made Page sound crazy and ambitious, like the Sixties Kid, a stone-cold freak in a country where the madness raced up the hills and into the jungles ... he'd pick up a camera the way you or I would pick up a ticket, but he would go places for pictures that very few other photographers were going.'
Page was wounded four times in Vietnam. The fourth and final time, he was logged dead on arrival'. But he survived against all the odds. Tonight he tells his story.

The Old Can't Run Fast Enough
'I'll tell you why we get no respect from the young - we can't run fast enough.' (Widow aged 70, twice robbed and beaten up) Elderly victims of violence are confused and bitter; more and more they are being mugged - often in broad daylight-by teenage and even younger children. The attack frequently seems motivated by a need to release violent aggression - the pickings from a pensioner's purse or wallet are almost always pretty meagre.
And though it's bad enough to be mugged, it's even worse to realise that, apart from medical care, the victim can expect little other help. Compensation applies only to physical injuries - and for every £1 we spend on offenders we devote lp to their victims. In other cases, when their savings are stolen, pensioners' bills run irretrievably into arrears. For some, growing old becomes a lonely nightmare, and peace of mind is replaced by fear and mistrust.
On film, Michael Dean investigates.
