Muhammad Ali on Stage, Iraq in 100 Years

Tina meets the American playwright Kemp Powers whose play One Night in Miami imagines what took place between Cassius Clay, Sam Cooke and Malcolm X, the night Clay became world heavyweight champion at the age of 22 in 1964.

Also in the programme, Iraqi writers Hassan Blasim and Anoud discuss their anthology of science fiction which imagines what Iraq will be like in 100 years and Icelandic novelist Jón Kalman Stefánsson argues that fiction is an important tool for fighting division and violence.

With Tina Daheley.
