In search of the European Dream: Peace and prosperity

What was the European Dream? What state of health is it in?

In the first of three films, BBC Newsnight's Gabriel Gatehouse meets 90-year-old Georges Berthoin, the last surviving member of Jean Monnet's original cabinet at the European Coal and Steel Community - the first institution of what would later become the European Union.

He examines what happened to the original dream of peace and prosperity.
