Cure for a Sick Man
Turkey was known in the last century as the 'Sick Man of Europe', and three military coups since 1960 made it appear the label still held true. But since the army returned to the barracks in 1983 and Mr Turgut
Ozal became Prime Minister, the country has had high economic growth under an elected government. Already a NATO member, Turkey now wants to join the European Community. How strong is the country's western orientation? What would be the impact of EEC membership? How secure are both the government's economic reforms and its democracy?
Presented by John Keay Producer MARK LAITY
