Folke West (Westerholm) is a Finnish television producer, reporter[1] and tour leader. Folke has made more than 370 tourism documentaries mainly in the 1990s. He acted as the producer of Yöradio (Night Radio) radio programme of Radio Ykkönen in Finland. Tourism programmes made by West include Matkamies and Folken matkassa. In Finland many of his tourism programmes are generally considered as somewhat camp, mainly because of his extraordinary speaking style.

In summer 2006 Nelonen aired document series made by Folke West, "Nuori Fidel Castro" (Young Fidel Castro).

In 2004 West was a candidate in the elections for the European Parliament from the lists of Swedish People's Party.[citation needed]
