Documentary series which celebrates the birth of motorways and hails the achievements of those behind the 'road revolution'. The first film takes us from the excitement of the building of the first motorway in Britain, the M6 Preston By Pass, to the celebration of the most complex, Spaghetti Junction. With amazing archive and often hilarious public information films, we take a trip back to a time when not only were motorways exciting and new, but there was also no speed limit. Interviews with the engineers who designed them, the navvies who built them and the people who drove on them bring to life and celebrate an achievement that we now take so much for granted. episode 1.
