The second World War left Europe convinced that it could not remain divided.This film illustrates the venture embarked upon by the six Common Market countries. It gives a number of examples of the practical achievements of the European Communities (ECSC, Euratom and EEC) in implementing the Treaty of Rome: the modernization of the coal and steel industries, the creation of a common agricultural market, the freedom of workers to move from country to country inside the Community, the pooling of resources ina programme for the peaceful use of atomic energy.
