Tony Benn: Brussels 'depressing and gloomy'

Veteran left-wing campaigner Tony Benn, who has died at the age of 88, recalled in his audio diary his first visit to Brussels in 1974.

He remembered how "un-British" he thought it was and said he felt as though he was "a slave to Rome".

This is a clip from the first series of The Benn Tapes, first broadcast on BBC Radio in 1993.
