Spanning across the 410 mile length of the A1 from London to Edinburgh, the series focuses on the work of the police, traffic officers and emergency response teams on both sides of the border as they deal with some of the thousands of incidents which affect the road every year. From farmers to truckers, horse trainers to camel handlers, the series also takes a ride alongside many of the colourful characters who spend their lives on the road, whether for work or play.In each episode, a range of compelling stories unfold through the teams in CCTV traffic control rooms which watch over the road 24/7. From swans running wild on the carriageway to the collapse of live electricity cables forcing the closure of the road, the series captures the work of the teams tasked with tackling all kinds of emergencies and whose main mission is to get the traffic flowing again.
