He was a 70's icon who thrilled millions with his daredevil antics and wry humour in Starsky and Hutch. But now Paul Michael Glaser is coming to our region in a totally different role. He is to star in the stage production of Fiddler on the Roof.

But in his real life he has been touched by personal tragedy. His wife Elizabeth caught aids from a blood transfusion and passed it onto their baby daughter. Sadly, they both died.

Paul, who chaired the aids foundation for eight years, told Fred why we must not become complacent just because of new drugs to combat the disease.

The National Theatre production of Alan Bennett's latest play, People, will open at the Marlowe Theatre this Autumn.
