Frontseat, this Sunday 7th November, 10.55pm TV One

Role Models:

- Jeremy Hansen investigates whether some of our greatest artists are being honoured at their old high schools;

- a panel of artists, educators & sportspeople debates the role of art in education;

- and Frontseat visits Wellington's City Gallery with some school-kids from Hastings to see what they reckon about contemporary art.

At the Globe: Oliver Driver treads the boards of the re-built Globe Theatre with actors-in-residence Tandi Wright and Simon Ferry, and has a Shortland Street reunion with Rebecca Hobbs and Craig Parker on the Millennium Bridge.

What's My Step?: Choreographer Kristian Larsen throws the book out the window and asks his dancers to improvise his latest work, 'Certainty'. The sound, lighting and visual folk have to keep up, too. It's a different show every night for 15 nights at Bats Theatre.

Best regards,
