Last year 16,610 people were killed on the roads in France. It was the highest toll in Europe. To bring home to the public the full impact of this mass slaughter, Mazamet, a rural town of 16,610 inhabitants ' died ' for ten minutes on a summer's afternoon. French television's report on Mazamet and the lessons which can be learnt from it, begins the new series of Europa.

Professor Sir James Lighthill argues that The General-Purpose Robot is a Mirage
About 20 years ago the development of computers seemed to offer a means of endowing machines with artificial intelligence. Ambitious predictions were made: by the year 2000, said some, robots will be able to compete with - and even outstrip - human beings over a wide range of activities.
Twenty years later, science fiction goes on featuring humanoid robots but, as a scientific proposition, are these dreams fading?
Sir James Lighthill , Lucasian Professor of Applied Mathematics at Cambridge, is very pessimistic about the possibility of giving robots anything like a human intelligence by using computers - even the very largest.
Sir James argues his case in the theatre of the Royal Institution, London with: Richard Gregory , Professor of Neuropsychology, Bristol University
John McCarthy , Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University, USA
Donald Michie, Professor of Machine Intelligence, Edinburgh University and an invited audience Chairman
