On the eve of the Common Market summit in Brussels, John Eidinow examines the policy at the heart of Britain's quarrel over the EEC budget. What changes are needed in the CAP? Will entrenched national interests make radical reform impossible?

I wrote when the melodies came to find me and seduce me. But when 1 had to go and find them, I cancelled the journey, lazy as I am! '
(GIOACCHINO ROSSINI)
In August 1829. Rossini's William Tell had its first night in Paris. It was his 39th opera and he was only 37-rich, successful, an international celebrity. Yet ten days later he went home to Italy for a rest. He never wrote another opera and the rest lasted, in effect, for the remaining 39 years of his life. Did Rossini really give up because, as he said, he was lazy, or was there more to it than that? Eleanor Bron tells the story of Rossini, William Tell and what happened after.
