Radio 4 Today Presenter and the BBC's former political editor Nick Robinson presents an authoritative and impartial two-part series exploring the turbulent history of the UK's relationship with 'Europe' - the Common Market, the EEC and now the EU.For decades it has divided the public, torn political parties apart, felled prime ministers and baffled, bemused and angered our neighbours in Europe. The question the country has faced again and again is whether we should be partners or spectators, take part in or stand aside from the post-war project of a union of European nations. We have - in other words - struggled with a simple question: does Europe mean ‘them' or ‘us'?

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Nick Robinson explores the troubled history of the UK's relationship with Europe. The critical decision Britain's voters are about to take in the referendum is the culmination of decades of agonizing debate about Britain's place in Europe, and its often lethal effect on British politics. The first episode examines why British governments first shunned the new Common Market then begged to join it. It explores the decisive part played by three British prime ministers - Winston Churchill, Harold Macmillan and Edward Heath. After being humiliated by the French president when Britain first applied to join, Heath triumphantly took the UK into the Common Market ten years later. But the seeds of today's problems were already being sown. The unfamiliar story emerges from a series of special interviews with Heath and two of his successors, Tony Blair and David Cameron, as well as other key British players and the main civil servants and diplomats involved on both sides of the English Channel.
