'Only 30 kilometres separate England from the continent - half an hour in a hovercraft. And yet the British Isles and Europe are separated by centuries. Centuries of separate development.'
That quotation from an Austrian television film sums up the subject of tonight's special hour-long edition of Europa: How does England stand in relation to Europe on the very first day of 1971? Europa will be seeking the views of foreign television stations, of foreign correspondents working in Britain, and of Britons who live and work in countries within the Common Market.

Introduced by James Mossman.

"We must open our empty hands and show that really there is nothing up our sleeves. Only then can we begin".
Thus Peter Brook describes his radical approach to the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Gone the magic world inhabited by fairies with wings and wands: instead the lovers pursue each other in a white gymnasium. Puck and Oberon juggle plates, walk on stilts and swing on trapezes.
Tonight Review shows extracts from Brook's "Dream", together with scenes from two of his earlier productions, "Marat/Sade" and "US", as part of a programme devoted to the work and development of one of Britain's boldest and most original directors.
