First of a two-part programme.
For a quarter of a century Lord Arnold Goodman 's reputation was that of the establishment's number one fixer of industrial and constitutional disputes, funding for the arts, and libel actions. 'Send for Lord
Goodman!' was the cry.
Yet he remained a figure very much in the background, partly because of his aversion to television.
In conversation with Donald Trelford , editor of The Observer, he discusses his work and his attitudes to
Britain today.

An eight-part natural history of North America.
7: Alaska, vast and remote, was the white man's last frontier; for the native peoples of America it had been their first. Since they came from Asia thousands of years ago, the Indians and the Eskimos of Alaska have led lives dependent on nature. The abundant wildlife lured white hunters to this icy land: Russians came for otter and seal pelts; Yankees for the blubber of whales and walrus. With the discovery of oil, will today's Americans keep faith with what survives of their last great wilderness?
