They do say that, as far as Hull is concerned, 'seeing is believing' - which is something the east coast weather seems all set to deny Jenny and Tony. How do you describe the Humber Bridge in thick fog - or the Spurn Point lifeboat in driving sleet? Enterprise is the answer - and the presenters of the world's fastest TV rock show are determined to bring their own mixture of music, chart news and views - come Hull or high water.

Busting the Green Belt
Presented by Jeremy Paxman For 30 years the green belt has provided a vital breathing space around
London, preventing the south east from becoming one giant urban sprawl. But has it now outlived its usefulness? Has it forced house prices up to unattainable levels, and is it now strangling new job-creating industry?
This month a crucial public inquiry opens in Essex to judge plans for a new country town. If it gets the go-ahead, the green belt could be busted and the country's house-building policy radically changed.
Richard Bath reports on the debate now raging and, in the studio, house builders, house buyers and conservationists argue the issues. Producer FIONA CHESTERTON
South East editor PHILIP HARDING

Two Painters Amazed 'The most original and exhilarating new painting in Britain today is being done by a new generation of Glasgow boys.' (THE GUARDIAN) Critical acclaim for a group of recent art school graduates has put Scottish art, and Glasgow in particular, firmly on the international map.
Two people at the forefront of this unexpected renaissance are Stephen Campbell and Adrian Wiszniewski. Within three years of leaving college, their pictures already hang in the Tate Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and are sought after by museums and collectors in Europe and North America. In this week's Arena, the former classmates meet again to take stock of their meteoric rise and to compare notes on the art scene in Britain and New York.
