Introduced by Olivier Todd.
A series of programmes in French on the politics and problems of the Fifth Republic.

Since the beginning of the Fifth Republic, vital decisions for France seem sometimes to have been taken by one man, General de Gaulle, the President -occasionally even against the inclinations of the elected parliamentary party and government who support him. Do the French care about this? Would they be content to be ruled by one man, or are they concerned about democratic government? This programme asks, 'Is parliamentary democracy a reality in France today?'

Dino de Laurentiis interviewed on location in Rome by Robert Robinson.
At the age of sixteen, de Laurentiis became the world's youngest feature film producer, and now, at forty-three, is among the most successful.
"When a film is good, everybody can take the credit. When it's bad, the producer alone is to blame."
"There it no magical way of ensuring that a film will be a box office success, but I just shoot and re-shoot and re-shoot until the film is exactly what I want."
"The best film a great actor makes is at the beginning of his career. At this time, he acts only and does not interfere with the director."
