The sky's the limit as Neil Walker and David Clayton link up with BBC Local Radio stations, and take a look at Britain's smaller airlines. Fly Me. Try Me

One airline takes off from a pebble beach in the Western Isles and offers the shortest scheduled flight in the country...just two minutes. Another, in Suffolk, uses a grass airstrip and boasts in-flight cuisine prepared by the neighbours.

PRE:Members of the public give their positive reactions to a sculpture near Durham Cathedral. Neil says he's mystified by the group of tree trunks resembling little but carved poles. Wilbourn explains that people need to sit on the key seat, look, and let their imagination wander. Neil: as you watch, the tree trunks form a 3-D frieze of the remnants of "The Last Supper". Wilbourn: does not believe people see his work as sculpture. OTN:TNT006/90GC0802 TXN/TDT:R4 20-Feb-1990 CON:WALKER Neil (int) WILBOURN Colin (spkr)
