Jonathan Maitland accompanies songsmith Billy Bragg on a memory-laden journey from London to Southend-on-Sea, along the route named in one of the songs - A13, Trunk Road to the Sea, written in 1983. The musician describes how the journey out to Southend takes him back to the seaside idyll of his childhood, while the return trip to London feels like an escape to the big city. They explore the area and the way it has changed over the years. Last in the series.
