Problems and realities of today
Introduced by Edgar Lustgarten

Edgar Lustgarten
BBC News and Current Affairs programmes with expert reporters and skilled comment cover the daily events of the world. Teams from the nation's newspapers and agencies, radio and television networks leap voraciously on disasters, rebellions, wars, political and international complications.

What additional virtues, therefore, is a weekly hour documentary to provide amidst such a plethora of comment and exposition? Our notion is that very often only after the flash-bulbs have popped, the reporters reported, and when those involved have had time for reflection, can a new and more definitive judgment and appraisal be reached.

But practically every story benefits from a longer, closer look: reasons, motives, nuances of human behaviour, previously unsuspected are now apparent. An apt example springs immediately to mind with the recent publication of Sorensen's book on Kennedy which reveals new aspects of the story of the Cuba crisis.

This is not to say that on occasions we shall duck the story which is bang in the news; but we shall be searching for fresh angles, unrevealed facets.
Our narrator and anchor-man will be Edgar Lustgarten, and we have two new young investigators, Jeremy Nicklin and David Elstein. (Alan Burgess)
