Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight...

:00:26.:00:30.

Plans to rename Hull's football team get the backing of Lord Prescott.

:00:31.:00:33.

There's support for the club's owner as the Tigers unveil their record

:00:34.:00:36.

signing. For anyone who don't seem, he has proved this week he wants the

:00:37.:00:40.

best for the football club. Lincolnshire's Police and Crime

:00:41.:00:43.

Commissioner says the Government is pickpocketing as the force faces

:00:44.:00:45.

more budget cuts. They are picking the pockets of the

:00:46.:00:49.

people of Lincolnshire and other counties by giving money with one

:00:50.:00:52.

hand and taking millions back with the other hand.

:00:53.:00:58.

Can old and young live side by side in these high rise flats?

:00:59.:01:03.

And I am live in Cleethorpes, where members of the BBC panto are

:01:04.:01:06.

preparing to take to the stage. And don't forget the detailed

:01:07.:01:11.

weather forecast in 15 minutes. They're in the process of spending

:01:12.:01:25.

?15 million on two record signings as they try and stay in the Premier

:01:26.:01:29.

League, but tonight the issue of Hull City's name change continues to

:01:30.:01:32.

dominate the national headlines. The former Deputy Prime Minister and

:01:33.:01:35.

Hull MP John Prescott has backed the club's owner, Assem Allam, over his

:01:36.:01:38.

plans to rebrand the club as Hull Tigers. We will hear from Lord

:01:39.:01:46.

Prescott in a moment but first, Simon Clark has this report.

:01:47.:01:55.

He has cast a fee of close to ?7 million, a record for Hull city.

:01:56.:01:59.

This is Nikica Jelavic, signed from Everton, and promises to score goals

:02:00.:02:01.

for the Tigers. I think only about football and I

:02:02.:02:05.

don't think about money. My job is to play, to score goals, to help the

:02:06.:02:09.

team, not think about money. Jelavic could be soon joined by this

:02:10.:02:14.

player, Shane Long. But next season will they be playing for Hull City

:02:15.:02:25.

or Hull Tigers? Today, former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott entered

:02:26.:02:28.

the row, saying the chairman, Assem Allam, could change the name if he

:02:29.:02:32.

wanted. Steve Bruce is weary of the debate, saying his side should be

:02:33.:02:34.

celebrating new signings. You know my thoughts on it, I have

:02:35.:02:43.

said them enough. But I think if anyone doubts him, then what he has

:02:44.:02:47.

done this week again proves that he has got the football club at the

:02:48.:02:51.

best and wants this club to be in the Premier League.

:02:52.:02:53.

Some fans' group are dead against the change. The City till I die

:02:54.:03:03.

campaign says Dr Alllam should not change the name, despite his

:03:04.:03:06.

willingness to invest heavily in his team.

:03:07.:03:09.

It has never been a case of we want the owner to leave, we are

:03:10.:03:12.

completely behind Assem Allam and his vision for the football club. We

:03:13.:03:16.

just believe we can have both, keep the name and market globally without

:03:17.:03:19.

the need to discard a years of history and heritage. And whichever

:03:20.:03:24.

newspaper you read, Assem Allam's threat to walk away if this change

:03:25.:03:27.

is not implement it is headline news. The FA will make the final

:03:28.:03:31.

decision. I certainly wouldn't second`guess

:03:32.:03:35.

them. What I am pretty confident of, though, is if it goes against Assam

:03:36.:03:41.

alarm he will have no compunction `` Assem Allam them you will have no

:03:42.:03:47.

compunction about walking away. You can tell that Steve Bruce is getting

:03:48.:03:51.

increasingly frustrated about this. He wants to talk about his team and

:03:52.:03:56.

new signings. In other words, he cannot wait for 3pm on Saturday at

:03:57.:04:03.

Norwich. Well, that decision from the FA is expected in April.

:04:04.:04:08.

Joining me now is Lord Prescott. Good evening. A lot of passion from

:04:09.:04:12.

the fans, do you understand why Doctor Alain wants to swap?

:04:13.:04:22.

`` Dr Allam in 1950I was at Rotherham playing Hull and at half

:04:23.:04:30.

time they went out and put a big tiger on the park. Tiger has been

:04:31.:04:35.

part of Hull as long as the city. But the fans don't want the name to

:04:36.:04:41.

change. Of course they are, we are passionate, they have two great

:04:42.:04:45.

rugby teams, football teams, they are passionate.

:04:46.:04:49.

But the real change I think is finding ?50 million for two players

:04:50.:04:54.

today, ?70 million he has invested keeping Hull in the Premier League,

:04:55.:04:58.

when we were collapsing four years ago. So if he pays the money he can

:04:59.:05:01.

call the shots and call whatever he wants the micro that is what is

:05:02.:05:05.

happening in the game now. You can see them advertised with all

:05:06.:05:09.

the various sponsorship means. Sponsorship is getting extra money

:05:10.:05:13.

to pay the player to keep us in the Premier League. He is giving us a

:05:14.:05:17.

marketing tool he believes can raise the money. But the fans are saying,

:05:18.:05:22.

is it to commercial? And is there evidence that swapping

:05:23.:05:27.

the name will make a difference? Al back is just meant, he has already

:05:28.:05:34.

put 70 million and `` well, back his judgement.

:05:35.:05:36.

He has put in another 50 million today, Steve Bruce wants to get in

:05:37.:05:40.

and play the game, we need the top players to stay in the Premier

:05:41.:05:44.

League, and it needs money. Do you think he should have

:05:45.:05:48.

consulted fans? Well, he did have a consultation

:05:49.:05:50.

with some of the funds. I believe they offered and agreed to

:05:51.:05:56.

provide an alternative financial package. That takes some believing.

:05:57.:06:03.

You don't just find 70 million or 15 million for teams. The only raised a

:06:04.:06:06.

quarter of a million contributions, and we pay quite a lot for going

:06:07.:06:11.

into the match, but how do you pay 40 million? What would happen if you

:06:12.:06:16.

can awaken Michael don't think he would, but presumably he would want

:06:17.:06:21.

to recover some of his assets. I don't think he means that. He is a

:06:22.:06:26.

professional businessman. Sometimes you should lose language in a

:06:27.:06:31.

different way. `` use Linux. When you say, you will be city and die,

:06:32.:06:36.

don't make it seem as if that is what you are saying to them. I was

:06:37.:06:40.

passionate, but at the end of the day keep Hull in the Premier League

:06:41.:06:44.

and that needs money. What you say to the who do not want

:06:45.:06:49.

change? Well, they can still shout city, I

:06:50.:06:54.

will be shouting Tigers. Let's get on with it and keep them

:06:55.:06:59.

up top. What do you think about this one?

:07:00.:07:07.

Does it really matter what the club is called? Do you worry about what

:07:08.:07:11.

will happen to Hull City if Dr Allam leaves?

:07:12.:07:18.

In a moment... A senior RAF official says safety wasn't compromised in

:07:19.:07:22.

the run up to the death of a Red Arrows pilot.

:07:23.:07:29.

The Police and Crime Commissioner in Lincolnshire has accused the

:07:30.:07:32.

government of "picking the pockets of council taxpayers" after the

:07:33.:07:35.

force was asked to make further savings of ?1 million from its

:07:36.:07:41.

budget of more than 100 million. Alan Hardwick says he has ruled out

:07:42.:07:45.

job cuts in the force, but says it will mean a rise in the part of

:07:46.:07:49.

Council Tax that pays for policing. Jake Zuckerman reports.

:07:50.:07:55.

Since he was elected as Police and Crime Commissioner, Alan Hardwick

:07:56.:08:00.

has had what he says is the difficult job of balancing the

:08:01.:08:03.

budget at Lincolnshire Police. Now he's hit out at the government after

:08:04.:08:06.

it topsliced almost ?1 million from the force's funding.

:08:07.:08:10.

We have here the government performing what I can only describe

:08:11.:08:13.

as slight of hand, picking the pockets of the people of

:08:14.:08:16.

Lincolnshire and other counties by giving us money with one hand and

:08:17.:08:19.

taking millions of pounds back with the other.

:08:20.:08:21.

Mr Hardwick has said it's now inevitable that the part of the

:08:22.:08:25.

council tax that pays for policing will have to rise by up to 2%.

:08:26.:08:29.

But that's led to criticism from one local MP.

:08:30.:08:35.

One local MP says you should not be doing this you should be freezing

:08:36.:08:38.

the council tax. Well, he is a great guy, if he lived

:08:39.:08:42.

in the real world including policing, he would not say that.

:08:43.:08:45.

In 2010 Lincolnshire Police was told by the government to save ?20

:08:46.:08:48.

million within five years. The force claims it has already made

:08:49.:08:51.

considerable progress. In 2012 it outsourced back office functions,

:08:52.:08:54.

like call handling and custody suite operation, to G4S staff. In the

:08:55.:08:58.

first year alone, that contract saved more than ?5 million `

:08:59.:09:01.

equivalent to the cost of 125 police officers ` and is projected to save

:09:02.:09:05.

?36 million over ten years. Alan Hardwick says the force is already

:09:06.:09:11.

the leanest in the country. Today he put his plans for a rise in council

:09:12.:09:19.

tax to people in Lincoln. Investing in the police, you are

:09:20.:09:23.

only going to benefit from it. They keep the streets safe, they take

:09:24.:09:25.

care of us. But not everyone agreed.

:09:26.:09:30.

No, I think they could make other cuts in the police service, rather

:09:31.:09:33.

than ordinary ratepayers having to pay. You have to save, you do not

:09:34.:09:39.

save by making us pay more. In a statement the Home Office said:

:09:40.:10:01.

Well, Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwicke has now launched a

:10:02.:10:06.

public consultation and wants to hear what the people of Lincolnshire

:10:07.:10:11.

has to say about his proposal. The inquest into the death of a Red

:10:12.:10:16.

Arrows pilot has heard that the RAF was going through a period of

:10:17.:10:19.

'considerable change' in the months before he died. The display team was

:10:20.:10:22.

short of engineers, but the man in charge has said safety was not

:10:23.:10:26.

compromised. Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham died when his ejection

:10:27.:10:29.

seat activated while his plane was on the ground at RAF Scampton in

:10:30.:10:37.

November 2011. Jessica Lane was at the inquest. What was said?

:10:38.:10:43.

Evidence was given by Air Vice Marshall Mark Green, who at the time

:10:44.:10:47.

of the accident was in charge of 22 Training Group, which included the

:10:48.:10:49.

Red Arrows. He said the RAF was going through a

:10:50.:10:53.

period of 'considerable change' in the months leading up to Sean

:10:54.:10:56.

Cunningham's death and staff were uncertain about cuts and

:10:57.:10:58.

redundancies imposed by the government's strategic defence and

:10:59.:11:01.

security review. But he insisted this did not mean safety was

:11:02.:11:06.

compromised. He told the inquest... "the evidence appears to be that the

:11:07.:11:09.

individuals who put the seat together and serviced it, did it in

:11:10.:11:13.

the way we would expect, whether they were supervised or not.

:11:14.:11:16.

" Air Commodore George Martin also gave evidence.

:11:17.:11:19.

He said that issues of under`staffing had been raised with

:11:20.:11:22.

him in September 2011 ` two months before Sean Cunningham died ` and

:11:23.:11:28.

they were being dealt with. He said...

:11:29.:11:41.

The inquest continues on Monday. Thank you very much indeed. More

:11:42.:11:51.

news now in brief. A woman has been arrested on

:11:52.:11:54.

suspicion of assisting a suicide after a teenager's body was found at

:11:55.:11:57.

a house in Sleaford. Lincolnshire police were called to Leicester

:11:58.:12:00.

Street yesterday morning, where they found the body of a 21`year`old

:12:01.:12:03.

woman. Officers say a woman of the same age has been released on bail

:12:04.:12:06.

while investigations are carried out.

:12:07.:12:09.

The jury in the case of an East Yorkshire woman accused of causing

:12:10.:12:12.

the death by careless driving of her older sister has been told that

:12:13.:12:15.

sympathy must have nothing to do with their decision. Rosie Ann Stone

:12:16.:12:19.

denies pulling into the path of Jennie Stone when both decided to

:12:20.:12:22.

overtake a lorry on the A165 near Bridlington last February. The judge

:12:23.:12:27.

asked the jury to use cold hard reason to reach its verdict.

:12:28.:12:33.

Humberside Fire and Rescue has sent 13 firefighters to help tackle this

:12:34.:12:36.

fire in Sherburn in Elmet near Leeds where 1,000 tonnes of tyres are

:12:37.:12:42.

burning. Thick black smoke can be seen for miles around. 70

:12:43.:12:50.

firefighters have spent all day at the recycling plant.

:12:51.:12:52.

The Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, was heckled by a small group of

:12:53.:12:56.

protestors during a visit to a GP's surgery in Immingham. Mr Hunt told

:12:57.:12:59.

Look North he was determined to turn around hospitals in Lincolnshire

:13:00.:13:02.

which are failing to meet some basic standards.

:13:03.:13:09.

We are accountable to the public, I am accountable as Secretary of

:13:10.:13:13.

State, for making sure we turn around hospitals in difficulty. I

:13:14.:13:16.

want my legacy to be that hospitals like North Lincolnshire and United

:13:17.:13:23.

Lincolnshire hospitals group have addressed those problems and we are

:13:24.:13:30.

focusing very heavily on that. Thank you for watching.

:13:31.:13:33.

Still ahead tonight... Going below the surface ` the plans

:13:34.:13:36.

to improve east Yorkshire's chalk streams.

:13:37.:13:40.

And with less than an hour until curtain up ` we're back stage at the

:13:41.:13:42.

Radio Humberside Panto. Keep your photos coming in,

:13:43.:13:58.

tonight's is on Bridlington South Beach. Thank you very much for that.

:13:59.:14:04.

A quick apology, last night we showed a picture and I said, what

:14:05.:14:09.

lovely ducks! I was told in no uncertain terms

:14:10.:14:13.

they are actually grey geese. I apologise for that. Getting your

:14:14.:14:18.

birds mixed up again, Peter? I have a great text here.

:14:19.:14:23.

I always watch Look North and have noticed that Peter often talks

:14:24.:14:27.

quickly without moving his lips. It he a ventriloquist?

:14:28.:14:33.

Well, he works with a dummy! I walked straight into that one!

:14:34.:14:37.

You did, you gave me that on a plate.

:14:38.:14:41.

Leslie cad the headline tomorrow, variable cloud with scattered

:14:42.:14:43.

showers. Low pressure is in charge. Quite a

:14:44.:14:49.

few places today has stayed dry, and the same will apply tomorrow. The

:14:50.:14:54.

showers have been coming across especially southern and eastern

:14:55.:14:59.

parts of Lincolnshire as the afternoon has gone on. Showers will

:15:00.:15:03.

continue to come from the south`west and push at times into east

:15:04.:15:07.

Yorkshire, quite showery at first but they should become more isolated

:15:08.:15:11.

later. Still some showers at dawn tomorrow morning. Some missed in

:15:12.:15:15.

places, lowest temperatures five Celsius. The sun will rise in the

:15:16.:15:24.

morning around 8am. The tide of high water... It looks like a repeat

:15:25.:15:35.

performance tomorrow, variable cloud with sunny intervals and also a

:15:36.:15:39.

scattering of showers. Just like today, some places will miss them

:15:40.:15:43.

all together but if you catch one it could be heavy. The breeze, moderate

:15:44.:15:50.

and from the site. The top afternoon temperatures, never to cold with the

:15:51.:15:55.

southerly wind, highs close to the average for the middle of January,

:15:56.:16:00.

around several serious `` seven Celsius, so fractionally above that

:16:01.:16:06.

at eight Celsius. The further outlook is unsettled, Friday night

:16:07.:16:11.

showers should die away, uncertain on the detail for Saturday but

:16:12.:16:16.

generally cloudy with showers and the possibility of longer outbreaks

:16:17.:16:20.

of rain for a time. Much of next week dominated by low pressure, and

:16:21.:16:25.

it looks cool and showery. As soon as you read that, I saw the

:16:26.:16:29.

look on your face and thought, that is an own goal.

:16:30.:16:34.

Thank you, I did not need to do any work at all, see you tomorrow. Or

:16:35.:16:36.

maybe we will not! Plans to allow younger people to

:16:37.:16:46.

live in local authority flats reserved for the over`55s has caused

:16:47.:16:49.

outrage on a Hull estate. The Council are currently reviewing

:16:50.:16:52.

their age restriction policies to deal with the large increase in

:16:53.:16:55.

demand for flats from young people but those living in Bayswater Court

:16:56.:16:59.

and Muswell Court say it would make their quiet lives a misery. Caroline

:17:00.:17:02.

Bilton has been to meet some of the residents.

:17:03.:17:08.

It is a beautiful place, nice tenants in here, all over 55.

:17:09.:17:11.

tenants in here, all over Mike Bickerstaff loves his highrise

:17:12.:17:14.

home ` he's one of over 100 residents living here who fit the

:17:15.:17:18.

age restriction of over 55. Being able to live out his retirement here

:17:19.:17:26.

was his dream come true. We have a lifestyle and it is nice

:17:27.:17:33.

in here. It is nice, quiet, we have a garden of the want to go out and

:17:34.:17:37.

sit in the summer... But Hull City Council are reviewing their age

:17:38.:17:40.

restriction policies on places like this which could mean younger people

:17:41.:17:43.

and families living here in the future.

:17:44.:17:48.

They do not call for our way of living, nice, quiet, and we do not

:17:49.:17:52.

go for the music banging around, coming in at midnight. He introduced

:17:53.:18:00.

me to Kath, who's lived here for 30 years.

:18:01.:18:05.

Us we are now come into his good, these places are wonderful. But with

:18:06.:18:10.

a family, children ` the thought of them running along the hallways, you

:18:11.:18:15.

know, graffiti in the walls come it is not this block, love. We are

:18:16.:18:23.

settled here, all of us. If we are creating age restrictions for people

:18:24.:18:27.

over 55 and over 30, then we have to make sure we have sufficient

:18:28.:18:31.

accommodation for people under those ages.

:18:32.:18:35.

And have you? Yes, we have, but clearly the

:18:36.:18:39.

bedroom tax is not helping. We know there are good people below

:18:40.:18:43.

those ages, we know that, we are not all the same, we are all

:18:44.:18:48.

individuals, but 55 is a good age to come in these places and live out

:18:49.:18:52.

your life. People clearly feel protective about

:18:53.:18:56.

what they have here and don't want change.

:18:57.:18:58.

While this review is taking place they do come in a way, feel

:18:59.:19:03.

threatened. But no decision has yet been made, that is due at the end of

:19:04.:19:09.

January. It is an interesting one.

:19:10.:19:13.

Let's get the other side of the coin. Earlier we spoke to some young

:19:14.:19:20.

people at a community centre and asked if young and old people can

:19:21.:19:25.

live side by side as neighbours. In a community, where they can live

:19:26.:19:29.

themselves, they are comfortable, they feel relaxed and are not

:19:30.:19:33.

worrying about us next door or late music. A lot of people expect young

:19:34.:19:38.

people not to support and help out where actually we do. Young people

:19:39.:19:42.

have the respect elderly people without music all night, and maybe

:19:43.:19:49.

get a bit intimidated if they see loads of people standing outside,

:19:50.:19:53.

but at the same time I think people need to respect younger people have

:19:54.:19:56.

a right to live their lives how they want to, as well. It looks like the

:19:57.:20:01.

older don't want to live with the Younger, the younger with the

:20:02.:20:02.

older. You may have a view on this, as

:20:03.:20:06.

well. We have some reaction last night to

:20:07.:20:10.

the story that many councils are raising council tax by almost 2%,

:20:11.:20:14.

while others are managing to freeze tax. Sarah in Cleethorpes says, "I

:20:15.:20:19.

am a single mum on a very tight budget. Phil is to.

:20:20.:20:23.

I would be willing to pay the rise as the services provided by the

:20:24.:20:28.

council are vital to me and my family." Percy says, "I'm not a

:20:29.:20:32.

lover of our labour council in Grimsby but listening to the council

:20:33.:20:35.

Grimsby ` "If a big response on that story, thank

:20:38.:21:01.

you for that. It used to be a fish farm, but now a

:21:02.:21:05.

70`acre site in East Yorkshire has become the areas latest nature

:21:06.:21:08.

reserve. Skerne wetlands have the most notherly chalk streams in the

:21:09.:21:11.

country and are an important home for kingfishers, water voles and

:21:12.:21:16.

dragonflies. There still work to be done but the Yorkshire Wildlife

:21:17.:21:19.

Trust has high hopes for the reserve in the future. Jo Makel's been to

:21:20.:21:22.

take a look. The West Beck chalk stream, near

:21:23.:21:25.

Skerne, is a site of special scientific interest. It's one of the

:21:26.:21:38.

headwaters which join to form the River Hull. And according to the

:21:39.:21:41.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, East Yorkshire can boast some of the best

:21:42.:21:44.

chalk streams in the country. This is the most northerly chalk

:21:45.:21:46.

river system in the UK and it compares like`for`like with the

:21:47.:21:51.

famous Futsal rivers in `` famous chalk rivers in Hampshire.

:21:52.:21:56.

It comes out filtered through the chocolate, the water, so it is a

:21:57.:22:01.

different habitat to a normal river and has characteristic species that

:22:02.:22:05.

just live in chalk rivers and that is why it is important.

:22:06.:22:08.

Under the water, fish like brown trout and grayling like the clean

:22:09.:22:13.

gravel of chalk rivers. Above, they support species like king fishers

:22:14.:22:16.

and water voles. But this site has another important attraction for the

:22:17.:22:20.

Trust. As a former commercial fish farm, it has 60 ponds and a network

:22:21.:22:24.

of ditches with they can use and adapt to create a mosaic of

:22:25.:22:27.

wetlands. This will help the river and the surrounding area.

:22:28.:22:33.

You have people farming around here and they are obviously doing their

:22:34.:22:36.

bit for wildlife, as well, so if we have a little pocket here that has

:22:37.:22:40.

lots of wildlife that may spill out into the wider countryside.

:22:41.:22:44.

It's a three year project and the area isn't yet open to the public.

:22:45.:22:48.

But the trust is organising special preview visits like this one.

:22:49.:22:52.

I did not realise there were so many fish farms. To make a good use of it

:22:53.:22:56.

like this, it would be a great place, as it develops, to come. From

:22:57.:23:01.

what John has told us today, I am excited at the prospect of creating

:23:02.:23:05.

something dynamic and natural and they have the water control

:23:06.:23:08.

opportunities here which are quite exciting.

:23:09.:23:13.

The trust now needs volunteers to help with practical work as well as

:23:14.:23:16.

monitoring and surveys. People in an East Yorkshire village

:23:17.:23:20.

have praised the pilot of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance who managed

:23:21.:23:23.

to land on this small green in North Frodingham near Driffield this

:23:24.:23:26.

afternoon. The ambulance was called to take a man with spinal injuries

:23:27.:23:29.

to Hull Royal Infirmary, after he had fallen from a building. An

:23:30.:23:39.

amazing bit of flying by the pilot. Oscar nominations were announced

:23:40.:23:42.

earlier and we have two award hopes from East Yorkshire. Chris Benstead

:23:43.:23:46.

` who we featured on Look North last night ` is nominated for his sound

:23:47.:23:49.

work on Gravity. The science fiction film starring George Clooney and

:23:50.:23:52.

Sandra Bullock got ten nominations in total. And Tracey Seaward `

:23:53.:23:55.

originally from Willerby ` seen here getting an honorary degree at the

:23:56.:23:59.

University of Hull, is nominated as a producer for Philomena which stars

:24:00.:24:07.

Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Good luck to Chris and Tracey, we will

:24:08.:24:18.

find out the winners next month. Christmas may be well and truly over

:24:19.:24:21.

but there's one tradition that's still taking place. Staff from BBC

:24:22.:24:26.

Look North and BBC Radio Humberside are getting ready to stage their

:24:27.:24:29.

pantomime for Children In Need. Tonight is the opening night of

:24:30.:24:32.

Mother Goose in Cleethorpes. Our reporter, Leanne Brown, is there.

:24:33.:24:35.

Leanne, how are the cast feeling? Well, it is extremely busy backstage

:24:36.:24:39.

tonight. The props are getting ready, the goose, Priscilla, is

:24:40.:24:47.

having her make up. On there are last`minute rehearsals taking place.

:24:48.:24:50.

People are nervous, but I don't know why they have been doing this for 13

:24:51.:24:55.

years. It started as a one`off but has been going ever since. Jonathan

:24:56.:24:59.

Parker, radio Humberside presenter, how are you feeling? A little

:25:00.:25:05.

nervous but I think we are ready. You also direct the show, what is it

:25:06.:25:09.

like directing members of the BBC team?

:25:10.:25:11.

It has got easier and easier every year.

:25:12.:25:15.

In 2002 we had never done anything like this, now experienced actors.

:25:16.:25:22.

What is in store tonight for the outrageous costumes?

:25:23.:25:25.

This is the most amiable yet. I have a little fairy liquid bottle

:25:26.:25:30.

you have never seen before. I look forward to seeing that one. Let's

:25:31.:25:34.

move over to Carl Weekley. Why do you keep on doing this?

:25:35.:25:40.

You would have thought it would get better, wouldn't you? We enjoy it,

:25:41.:25:46.

we have massive egos, so we keep coming back. People keep coming back

:25:47.:25:49.

because they say it is different every time. I don't want to tempt

:25:50.:25:53.

fate but you are hoping to reach a big target this weekend.

:25:54.:25:57.

Yes, if enough people come to see it and there are some tickets left, we

:25:58.:26:02.

will rake through the ?100,000 mark, fingers crossed.

:26:03.:26:06.

And if you want to come along, there are still tickets available for

:26:07.:26:10.

Saturday and Sunday night. If you want tickets for those

:26:11.:26:13.

performances you need to call the council box office.

:26:14.:26:17.

The number is on your screen. Good luck to the cast for their opening

:26:18.:26:21.

night. Let's go back to the headlines... The Chancellor has

:26:22.:26:24.

backed an above inflation rise of the minimum wage.

:26:25.:26:30.

Lord Prescott has said that all micro fans should give Dr Allam are

:26:31.:26:33.

backing even if it means a name change.

:26:34.:26:37.

70 million years invested keeping all micro in the Premier League,

:26:38.:26:40.

when we were collapsing four years ago.

:26:41.:26:44.

And the weather tomorrow, cloudy with sunny spells and scattered

:26:45.:26:47.

showers, top temperature in the afternoon around eight Celsius.

:26:48.:26:52.

A big response on the subject of the ball. Jason says, did Hull feel

:26:53.:26:58.

became that matter when they became Hull sharks? It is now history, just

:26:59.:27:02.

as this will be in a few years. I have been following Hull since

:27:03.:27:06.

1958. I could not care less whether they

:27:07.:27:11.

are called Hull city or Hull Tigers. After today's signing I have changed

:27:12.:27:16.

my mind to let Doctor Alain do what he wants.

:27:17.:27:23.

More signings will come, without Allam it is dark days again.

:27:24.:27:29.

This is laughable and you call that a football brand? It is alien to

:27:30.:27:37.

every football supporter, it sounds like a hockey team.

:27:38.:27:44.

Join us tomorrow lunchtime if you can, look after yourselves, good

:27:45.:27:45.

night.
