The reputation of Gunter Grass as poet, playwright and novelist reaches far beyond his native Germany. "The Tin Drum", his first novel, sold 1½ million copies and was translated into 16 languages. But since 1965 he has sacrificed several months each year to support Willy Brandt, and has become as well known in his political activities as for his writing.
In this film made in 1972, Grass talks about his life from childhood in Danzig under the Nazis, to international fame.

Commentary by Alan Dobie
"Watch this if you can ... no livelier example of the writer working in public life ... excellent film." (THE TIMES) "Fascinating film of a man who, with his humour, humanity and calm lucidity is his own best PR man." (THE OBSERVER)

' Punch a Pom a Day ' was a joke campaign launched by a local radio station in New Zealand. However the joke seemed a little less funny 12,000 miles away in England; especially when it was learned that New Zealand's 150-year-old open-door policy to British immigrants was about to come to an end.
Tonight Europa has reaction to the anti-pom campaign from New Zealand television and looks at how immigrants from other European countries have fared down under.

It is an average day in New York's 21st Precinct Police Station as a steady flow of criminals, large and small, passes through the plain-clothes detectives' squad-room. But for Det Jim McLeod , a ruthlessly efficient cop, the day is a special one: it will be his last.
