dc.description.abstract This edition of the BBC Caribbean Report examines the impact of trade between Europe and the Caribbean in the aftermath of the re-negotiation of Lome III, and the pending removal of internal trade barriers in Europe in 1992. It also takes a brief look at excerpts from the ceremony marking the 300th anniversary of the ‘glorious revolution’, the moment in British history in 1688 when King James II was overthrown in favour of King William and Queen Mary, who recognized for the first time in British history, the supremacy of Parliament. Aspects of French Guiana’s space programme are explored, including the launching of two telecommunications satellites. Finally, in the run up to the fourth test match between the West Indies and England which is to take place at Headingley, the program takes a brief but critical look at issues surrounding the sport of cricket, with topics ranging from the poor condition of pitches across the country to the dismal performance of the English team in the recently concluded 3rd test match against the visitors, which was held at Old Trafford. en_US

dc.description.tableofcontents 2. Trade between Europe and the Caribbean may be set for a revolution with the re-negotiation of Lome III, and the pending removal of internal trade barriers in Europe in 1992. Among those raising important question is Sir Shridath (Sonny) Ramphal, Commonwealth Secretary General. Hugh Crosskill interviews Mr. Ramphal, and the two discuss matters related to Lome III and some of the important questions that need to be considered. Sir Ramphal raises questions about access markets for ACP countries, the future of commodities such as bananas, sugar and rum and the implications of the single market on external relationships between Europe and ACP countries. He contends that among other things Lome needs freshness and new dynamism to sustain its impact. (00:38-04:34) en_US
dc.description.tableofcontents 3. Speakers from the Parliaments of ten Caribbean countries were in London to take part in a ceremony marking the 300th anniversary of the ‘glorious revolution’, the moment in British history in 1688 when King James II was overthrown in favour of King William and Queen Mary, who recognized for the first time in British history, the supremacy of Parliament. BBC correspondent Nick Jones reports on the ceremony, which included participants from Bermuda, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and the Eastern Caribbean countries. (04:42-07:21) en_US

dc.description.tableofcontents 5. The space programme in French Guiana launches the Ariane III rocket. Hugh Crosskill interviews John Wilson of the BBC’s Science Unit regarding the rocket’s cargo and other aspects of the space programme. Mr. Wilson reports that the rocket will be carrying two separate telecommunications satellites, one belonging to the Government of India, and the other belonging to a European consortium. Wilson was also asked about the reasons for the popularity of French Guiana as a launch site. He attributes two main reasons for this; the first being that French Guiana is relatively under populated, and this low population density makes it more suitable for the dangerous business of launching rockets. The second reason is its location, which is virtually on the equator, which makes it an ideal launch site for a rocket in technical terms. The indirect benefits to the people of French Guiana is seen in terms of infrastructure related to the launch facility, such as roads, electricity, telecommunications facilities etc. (09:17-11:18) en_US
