Terry Waite 's home territory is the north west, which has bred and attracted many people with strong, provocative ideas.
In the last programme in the series he meets Frankie Vaughan.
Frankie Vaughan was named Frank Ephraim Ableson when he was born into a Jewish family in Liverpool. Now he says, 'the Frankie Vaughan who walks on to the stage is somebody else. He knows he has to strut and look attractive. He knows he has to be cheeky, to cajole and to love. That helps me to get over my problems.' Director ALF BATES

Six episodes in the history of NATO
3: A 16-inch Manhole Cover
At NATO's Lisbon conference in 1952 it was decided that the alliance would need 90 divisions for the successful conventional defence of Europe. But NATO governments could not see how the alliance could afford them, and consequently there are now about 5,000 nuclear weapons on European soil. Was this the right decision?

As February ends off
Canada's north Atlantic coast, it's the birth season for harp seals. The pups, known as whitecoats, enter a world of ice and snow - from the warmth of their mother's womb to sub-zero temperatures - a difference of almost 50° Celsius. This film by Norman Lightfoot looks at the survival strategy of the baby seals in coping with the harsh environment. They really need their white coats. Presented for television by GEORGE INGER BBC Bristol

continues a season of classic films from
Australia. This week starring Bill Hunter and Gerard Kennedy Australia 1948-1956. During this period two great rival newsreel companies, Cinesound and Movietone, were the main source of visual information for people throughout the country. This fascinating portrait of almost a decade uses a 'fictional' story interwoven with actual and recreated newsreel footage from the period. The result is one of the most entertaining, exciting and innovative films to come from the new Australian cinema.
