Apparently Public TV in the USA is showing Christopher Timothy and Peter Davison's road trip in a 4/4 series "Vintage roads great and small" - interesting it seems to be a More4 production but not seen it yet in the UK...

Well spotted. Let's hope it gets a UK airing.

the trailer looks fun.

It seems though that you can only view the full program in Canada swear

I've seen the first one (Inverness to Skye) and have episodes 2 and 3 on the PVR - London to Land's End down the A30, and Cardiff to Snowdonia through mid-Wales, I think.

I very much appreciate the sentiment behind the programme. Years ago (as a spotty teen, must have been somewhere around 1984 or so, I think) I navigated for my dad driving his 1930 Austin 7 from Warminster to Chester: we had a 1930 RAC atlas and guidebook, and kept to a route consisting only of roads that had existed when the car was built: no motorways, no bypasses, a wonderful journey via Chippenham, Cirencester, down the Birdlip hill (that was quite interesting...) into Gloucester and then along the Marches via Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Wrexham. With a (not quite in keeping with the times) portable transistor radio tuned to Radio 4 long wave for Test Match Special.

Seems like you can sign up for a week's free trial of Acorn TV, but it's one of those ones where you have to provide your card details to get the free trial, so I think I'll pass....

https://signup.acorn.tv

although as intimated above this you can do the free trial through amazon prime, so don't have to give your card details to a third party.

It appears to be a service that allows views outside of the UK to watch British programmes.

I suppose it's appropriate that the service isn't available if you are in the UK (I just tried!) but slightly ironic given that this particular show hasn't been broadcast here!
