' A thousand years ago. half the land lay submerged, as it had been since the days of the Ice Age; and it was the dyke-digging, dam-building. busybeavering Hollanders who dried it out and gave it back to the world.'
Laurie Lee takes a poet's view of their handiwork and presents his personal picture of The Netherlands today.

If a Dutchman wants to become ?n artist, he can get a grant from the government: if he cannot sell his work, he can dip into a provident fund; and if he grows old in his art, he can get a state stipend.
Today's artists, dealers and critics compare this life-style with the more traditional starving-in-a-garret existence and assess its effect on the country's contemporary art.

The plethora of parties in The Netherlands reflects a passion for democracy unequalled in Europe. Add to that, a system of Proportional Representation and it becomes almost impossible for one party to win an overall majority. Elections are invariably followed by a bewildering game of consensus and coalition with all the moves and counter-moves taking months before a new government can be formed. In examining the realities of PR, Kasper De Graaf talks to Prime Minister, Dries Van Agt , and other politicians and commentators.
