In the final instalment of Martin Wainwright's campaign to bust the damaging myth of the North, he heads to the North-East - the only region of the UK with a positive balance of trade. The future of the car industry, green technology, and the off-shore energy sector are his focus.

In Newcastle, Peterlee and Sedgefield, he meets business leaders, scientists and entrepreneurs who are helping to ensure the future of Britain's advanced manufacturing sector.

The programme includes economist Bridget Rosewell, business leaders Arnab Basu, Geoff Turnbull, and Harry Bradbury, and chief executive of the North-East Local Economic Partnership Edward Twiddy.
