True or false?The EU meddles in everything, even the curvature of bananas

There are EU regulations on toys, sewage, online shopping, lorry drivers' breaks, washing machines, how big a pizza should be, leave from work after childbirth, even what time of the day it is at different times of the year – not to mention the now infamous case of how curvy is too curvy for a banana. The list goes on and on. Does the EU really meddle in everything? And who decides on these regulations?

This programme by Belgian broadcaster RTBF is part of the European Collection, a joint initiative from European public service media (ARD, ARTE, France Télévisions, SRG SSR, RTBF and ZDF), coordinated by ARTE.
