About this programme

8/20. Melvyn Bragg visits the Haynes International Motor Museum in Somerset for a look back on the boom in car travel and ownership of the 1960s. Joe Moran describes being one of the thousands of men who came from Ireland to build Britain's motorways, and Anna Purkiss sees footage that evokes memories of her family being forced to move house due to road construction.
