 THE CS INTERVIEW:
 Richard Pekar.

 Burslem-based Richard Pekar, founder of the North Staffordshire Hungarian Association, has made a film of his father's heroic escape from the horrors of socialism. In 1957 his father crawled through miles of frozen mud, barbed wire and land mines to escape. He eventually settled in Stoke-on-Trent. The Last Train to Budapest was made for 10,000, with a 6,000 National Lottery grant.
