Peter Mandelson on Frost Over The World
On the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, which established what was then called the Common Market but is now named the European Union, Sir David Frost talks to Peter Mandelson, the European external trade minister.

Sir David Frost asks whether 50 years of relative peace in Europe can be attributed to the European Union or whether the nuclear deterrent was responsible.

He also asks whether at 50 years old, the European Union is facing a mid-life crisis?
