A considerable contribution to the EU Referendum debate, with lots of background information from the BBC.
If you have a chance to watch this documentary, take the time to do it. It goes over the history of the negotiations leading, after much ado, to Great Britain’s entry, including de Gaulle’s resounding _non_ . Lots of interviews with people who participated in the whole process – proof of the value of a great archive like the BBC’s. Fascinating. Part one was transmitted on 12th April on BBC2, part 2 scheduled for 19th April at 2100 BST, repeated on the 20th and 21st on various BBC2 channels in the UK.
Radio 4 Today Presenter and the BBC’s former political editor Nick Robinson presents an authoritative and impartial two-part series exploring the turbulent history of the UK’s relationship with ‘Europe’ – the Common Market, the EEC and now the EU.
