In the first of two programmes, the former leader of the Labour Party Neil Kinnock examines the future of socialism by reference to its past. "I had the good fortune to benefit from a socialism of opportunity, a socialism of community," he says. "Added together that meant liberty."
He contrasts this with the ideological socialism that dominated the Iron Curtain countries, and among those he speaks to is the former
President of the Soviet Union
Mikhail Gorbachev. "What was defeated here was not socialism," stresses
Gorbachev. "It was a Utopian communist model that was imposed with the force of a totalitarian regime."
Kinnock looks at how his form of ethical socialism can confront and solve the problems of the21st century. Producer Dippy Chaudhary
