This absorbing and ever-popular obs-doc series returns for a third journey, following life on and alongside Britain’s iconic A1 highway, which stretches 660km between London and Edinburgh. From police patrols in the Scottish borders to Highways England crews close to the capital, the series captures life on the road with the men and women tasked with keeping the traffic moving and motorists safe… dealing with daily accidents, wide-loads and even the challenges of extreme weather. In addition to following officers racing to multi-car pile-ups, catching drunk drivers and rescuing a pregnant passenger stranded after a collision, this third series tracks truckers transporting out of this world cargo in the form of astronaut Tim Peake’s spacecraft, watches when a beer tanker suffers a blowout, and doggedly follows a team of champion huskies almost hounded off the road. GoPro, drone and CCTV footage continues to reveal the many and varied stories, all set against the different urban, rural and coastal backdrops through which the A1 runs.
