They all contribute to Europa. For wherever there is a story the film crews of our television colleagues on the Continent are there reporting and commenting. Introduced by Derek Hart

Visconti at Work
Italian film director Luchino Visconti is currently filming Thomas Mann's famous story Death in Venice. Review cameras followed him through one hectic, 12-hour working day in which he transformed squares and canals and hotel cellars to conjure up the Edwardian era. Review also shows Visconti on his travels through Hungary, Poland, Finland, and Sweden in search of a 14-year-old boy to play his juvenile lead.
British actor Dirk Bogarde (left), stars in this film: he talks about working with this great and exacting director.
The celebrated writer has a new novel, The Driver's Seat, published this week. James Mossman talks to the author of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Ballad of Peckham Rye and Memento Mori about her work and the world of her novels.
