In this 15-part series BBC One follows the men and women who work round the clock on Britain’s longest and most iconic road, as they strive to keep the traffic moving and public safe.

Spanning across nearly 400 miles of the A1 from London to Edinburgh, the series focuses on the work of the police, traffic officers and emergency response teams 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 Britain’s most iconic highway, whether for work or play.
