The Careful Predator Everybody knows the wildlife of Africa is doomed. After all there are too many People, and people and animals don't go together. Not so, it seems. There is now a controversial experiment going on in Zimbabwe that points in the other direction. Villagers are encouraging elephant, lion and leopard back and even allowing giraffe, eland and impala on to their grazing land - alongside, or even instead of, their cattle.
In exchange they are getting food and income from a carefully controlled hunting industry. Rather than uncontrolled poaching, the legal sale of the skins and ivory may turn out to be better for both the people and the animals.

Painting for Pleasure ... and Profit
Five Artists of the 80s
The artists Julian Schnabel , Markus Lupertz ,
Sandro Chia , Francesco Clemente and Georg Baselitz command some of the highest prices on today's booming art market. Their paintings, monumental in scale and mainly figurative in style, have begun to fill the walls of private collections world-wide. They have been hailed as the 'New Expressionists' - though some cynical observers accuse them of turning out their pictures to order.
As they establish themselves in spacious New York premises, castles in Germany and even retreats in India, Arena examines the real driving force behind today's art world successes. Film editor PETER GEISMAR
Director MICHAEL BLACKWOOD Arena editor ALAN YENTOB
