Introduced by Derek Hart and Brian Widlake Six programmes on the Common Market
4: A Question of Money
The Deutschmark crisis last month threw the Common Market into disarray and showed that the plans drawn up for a European currency are a long way from the realities of the international money market. Britain was on the sidelines then, but, if we join, the Six would almost certainly want to end our role as banker to the world. But has Britain other financial skills which could work to our advantage in the Common Market?

Introduced by David Jones Robert Lowell and Jonathan Miller
Robert Lowell is America's outstanding living poet. He is also a considerable dramatist for whom the ancient myth of Prometheus who stole fire from the gods and was punished for his audacity has a special meaning. In his own version of Aeschylus's tragedy Prometheus Bound, the intellectual rebel is pitted against political tyranny in a drama which Lowell sees as a parallel with the condition of contemporary America.
DAVID JONES introduces Kenneth Haigh in scenes from the play. which opens next week at the Mermaid Theatre, and ta)ks to Robert Lowell and the director Jonathan Miller about the reasons for the adaptation and the ideas behind the play.
