Two partisan views of a controversial issue
Government Aid to the Third World
Laurie Taylor presents two films made from deeply opposed positions by two members of the House of Lords.
Lord Bauer, a Tory peer and professor of economics, argues that whatever the intention, 'government aid to the Third World is damaging'. It often rewards repressive regimes and deepens poverty. On the other side is Labour peer Lord Hatch, who argues that, with 17 million people dying every year from starvation, charity and 'market forces' can never be enough. Only government aid can meet the challenge of world poverty.
Both films have been made with the help of the BBC
