Description:
1. Headlines (00:00-00:32)
2. Fears that Europe’s banana market will collapse have intensified. The European Union Agriculture Ministerial Meeting in Brussels have failed to make any progress on the shaping of a new banana regime. Hugh Crosskill reports that a lack of political will on the part of European politicians seem set to crush Caribbean hopes for continued preferential treatment. Interview with Claire Wenner (00:33-03:42)
3. St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Kennedy Simmonds has attacked the private sector of the larger Caricom member states accusing them of exploiting the smaller islands (03:43-05:12)

5. Guyanese-born Herman Ousley has been appointed the first black Chairman of the British Commission for Racial Equality (CRE). In an interview with Mike Jarvis, he stated that one of his top priorities is to improve public perception of the CRE (07:20-09:58)
6. The release of a film today on Malcolm X in the US has caused a resurgence of interest in the black consciousness movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s. According to Verne Smith, the Atlanta Bureau Chief for Newsweek Magazine, it is likely to renew the message of the black consciousness movement for a new generation in America. A Caribbean perspective is provided by Dr. Hilary Beckles, Head of the History Department, UWI Mona and Dr. Brian Meeks, Lecturer in Government, UWI Mona (09:59-14:42)
