A special repeat of last night's film profile of Jean Monnet
He has spent his lifetime persuading Europe's leaders that they had no choice but to unite and in a real way 1972, with Britain firmly on the road to Rome, is his year.

Tonight, the Prime Minister, The Rt Hon Edward Heath MP, and Germany's Chancellor Willy Brandt talk about Monnet and his work.
He created the European Coal and Steel Community which turned the idea of a united Europe into reality. With Britain's entry into the Common Market growing nearer, he sees his concept as inevitable.
He claims no master plan, that in over half a century of Europolitics he has dealt with situations as they arose. But, as he says in this rare personal interview with Alan Watson 'Your questioning has made me seek and understand things of my past which I have not understood before.'

Since the second world war an explosion has taken place in Britain. The traffic on our roads has grown by five times and the number of passengers passing through our airports has multiplied by 50. This sudden expansion affects us all whether we like it or not. Tonight's special report examines the implications.
Introduced by Hugh Scully

The car and the aeroplane: these two are special. When a future historian comes to write about life in Britain during the second half of the 20th century he will find that these two familiar vehicles have had a more radical influence on our lives than any other of the innovations which we call progress. So we are going to compile a sort of television notebook to help him, while most of the visual evidence is still around.
