Must Britain decide now to join the European Economic Community? Mr. Younger tays that the political implications arc so far-reaching and at the same time so obscure that any immediate decision would have to be negative. He thinks that as the future form of European unity becomes clearer Britain will be able to achieve a satisfactory association with her neighbours which will take account of the differences between Britain and Europe as well as the similarities.

Translated and arranged by Rayner Heppenstall from the short novel
' Les Lauriers sont coupes ' by Edouard Dujardin
Produced by Rayner Heppenstall
Les Lauriers sont coupes, first published serially in La Revue Independante in 1887, was the first recorded example of novel in ' interior monologue ' or ' stream of consciousness ' form. It strongly influenced lames Joyce, who picked up a copy on station bookstall on the way to Tours in 1903.
by Bernard Malamud
Read by Sam Wanamaker
The characteristic world of Bernard Mala mud's stories is the poor Jewry of New York. The Magic Barrel, which takes as its hero an earnest rabbinical student in search of a wife, is a hilarious and sad exploration of a corner of that world.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
