The spotlight has certainly shone on Hartlepool and East Durham down the years and here are some examples of the times when all eyes were on our area.
Do you recognise any of the young stage talents from the Throston School of Dance pantomime in 1994 - one photo depicting the Addams Family and the other showing 11 young spiders?
Or how about this line-up of four performers from the Hartlepool Stage Society production of Anything Goes in 1995?
Lastly, who remembers this scene from 1987 when the television cameras came to Easington Colliery for a new play called Road?
The play told the story of the day-to-day lives of people in a close-knit community.
