The last programme in the series in which Alexander Walker recalls the screen careers of the cinema's brightest stars. Vivien Leigh
If Vivien Leigh had done nothing but play Blanche du Bois in A Streetcar Named
Desire, and Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind, her place in cinema history would be secure. It was an incredible achievement that an English girl with her stage background and no power base in Hollywood should make off with two of the greatest roles in American movies - and win Oscars for both performances. Producer WENDY CLAY (R)

A code word used by Gerry Anderson 's characters, FAB was thought to mean fabulous. His television series, including Thunderbirds, Stingray and Terrahawks, pioneered sci-fi adventure. The programmes remain popular with adults and children alike, and Anderson's own combination of puppet-making and characterisation has given him cult status. Now there is a new project, Space Police, this time combining puppets and humans. Will it be FAB? Gerry Anderson and his colleagues talk about their work to Christopher Cook. Producer RACHEL YORKE
