As Lebanon's June 7 elections approach, Al Jazeera takes the political pulse of one of the world's most vibrant cities - the Lebanese capital, Beirut.

As well as giving a taste of the street life, colour and culture of Beirut, The Arab Street hears from Beirutis as they share their views on their own country and the wider Arab world.

From the economy and Lebanon's political future to plastic surgery and the Pope, residents of Beirut tackle the topics that really matter to them.

The Arab Street - Beirut can be seen from Monday, June 1 at the following times GMT: Monday: 1230; Tuesday: 1930; Wednesday: 0630; Thursday: 2330; Friday: 1400; Saturday: 0330, 1730; Sunday: 0030.
