Hartlepool is on the east coast. And that's it. That's the sum total of our knowledge about it in the No Limits office.
Apparently, fishing still flourishes there, they build oil platforms, and Hartlepool dock rock isn't pink and minty - it's a three-day outdoor rock festival, boiler makers don't make boilers, and it's here that the first shell landed on British soil during the Great War.
What we did know, is that No Limits is still the world's fastest TV rock show. Are you hooked yet?

A series for those who love sail and the sea. Old Gaffers
Narrated by Tom Salmon Every year, off the River Blackwater on the East Coast, the Old Gaffers slog it out.
In 1985 the weather was the worst for 15 years and only the sturdiest of the old working boats and yachts sailed the 30-mile course.
Two of the leaders in their class are Helen and Violet, an 80-year-old shrimping bawlie, and the 105-year-old oyster smack Sunbeam.
The film follows their close-fought race.

The third match is potentially a 'firecracker' because it could well be a battle of Welshmen, former No 1 CERI MORGAN playing his successor, and now No 7 seed, PETER LOCKE.
Prize money of E36,000 is to be shared among the 32 entrants who started out in this important darts tournament. Commentators
