|Michael Caine has been nominated for an Oscar for
films made in every one of the past five decades

|Vuk Jeremic, Serbia’s foreign minister, joins
Sir David to discuss the upcoming elections
This week Serbia signed an agreement with the EU, the first step towards joining the Union.
The pact, when ratified, will grant Serbs closer trade relations and more lenient visa requirements with the EU.
The agreement comes before parliamentary elections on May 11. These will pit President Boris Tadic’s pro-EU Democratic Party against nationalist parties opposed to membership of the group.
The vote comes at a pivotal time for Serbia after Kosovo’s secession from the country earlier this year.
Vuk Jeremic, Serbia’s foreign minister, joins Sir David to discuss the upcoming elections.
Jeremic says that the poll is effectively going to be a referendum on Serbia joining the EU.
He warns that victory for the nationalists could isolate the country for another generation; and says Kosovo’s declaration of independence has created uncertainty and instability in the region.
