Christopher Timothy and Peter Davison, who starred opposite each other in BBC One’s All Creatures Great and Small, are reuniting for Vintage Roads, a new More 4 history & travelogue series.
The pair will get behind the wheel of a Morgan 4/4 – the world’s oldest production car – and, sticking two fingers up to sat navs, set out on a series of journeys along Britain’s most beautiful vintage roads.
Meeting up with passionate petrol heads keeping our motoring heritage alive, they’ll experience the thrills of the 1930s when Britain first fell in love with the motor car and when the open road led to adventure and exploration.
Their series of road trips takes them through some of the most stunning scenery in the UK – from London to Land’s End, from Loch Ness to The Isle of Skye and from Cardiff to Snowdonia.
Along the way they roll up their sleeves and get hands-on with some of the world’s rarest vintage vehicles, including a 1900 Georges Richard, an Arrol-Johnston Dog Cart and a 1934 ERF Lorry.
They get under the hood of a rare 1931 Armstrong-Siddeley, hitch a lift to the top of the world’s largest slate mine and get let loose in a 1948 Land Rover on the very beach where this British icon was first designed and tested.
