Genome: [r4 Bd=19900520]Last year's Reith

Lectures, Beyond the Tunnel of History, were given by the French poet Jacques Darras and attracted much controversy. Speaking from notes rather than a script, Darras asserted that an increasingly united Europe should learn from the less familiar episodes of history. Richard Mayne chairs a discussion in which Jacques Darras is confronted by the historian Sir Geoffrey Elton , the poet Peter Porter and the writer on European affairs Francois Duchene.
