The last in a series of five films in which people try to communicate.

The most elaborate communication rituals of all take place between diplomats. This historic film, the first-ever record of the full course of a major diplomatic meeting, clearly shows the different languages used by diplomats in public - at the conference table - and in private, whispered conversations - 'corridor work.'

Even a 'good cause' like the British/American plan to establish a UN Disaster Relief Coordinator takes three weeks negotiations to define the job in sessions of the UN Economic and Social Council where the member countries and the huge UN Relief Agencies (like UNICEF) fight to maintain their independence.

The ingredients for magic brews in Durham aren't bat's blood and toad's warts but farm manure and Epsom salts. They seem to work nevertheless. The prize-winning leeks they nourish make southern leeks look like shallots.
Those southerners who know about the North East leek contests regard them as just a joke. But there is more to them than that. For men like Brian Shave of Lyton Leek Club, leek growing is a tie with a traditional culture that is still firmly held on to despite social change.
