The Brief. A web-only documentary coming soon on

In this unfolding European journey, Empire tackles the hegemony of Germany, asking if it is the continent's reluctant leader. We also examine whether Europe is set to become more German or if Germany is prepared to become more European. 

This month, The Brief will look into the various complexities of the European project. Online by mid-November.

Empire can be seen from the last Sunday of every month at 2000GMT, and is re-aired during the following week at these times GMT: Monday: 1200GMT; Tuesday: 0100GMT; Wednesday: 0600GMT.
