Robbie Coltrane has set himself a unique and formidable challenge. In a mission to discover the real Britain he is winding back time by travelling the length of the country in a classic 1950's car, shunning busy motorways in favour of winding B-roads. Coltrane is on a mission to expose the true essence of Britain. Getting off the hard shoulder and disposing of the sat nav, he aims to uncover the exotic natural features, unique characters and intriguing customs that make Britain what it is today. With a nose for adventure and armed with his inimitable wit, Robbie will discover what we've built as a country - what we do and who we really are - through the stories of the people he meets along the way. Robbie will uncover the places that define Britain and, more importantly, the people that make our country unique!
