Robbie Coltrane is on a mission to discover the real Britain by travelling the length and breadth of the country in a classic Fifties car on a road trip with a difference. Robbie will travel the 400 miles from London to his home in Glasgow, shunning motorways and sticking to the winding old B-roads, which take him into unknown territory. On his travels, Robbie hopes to uncover the real heart and soul of Britain. Our intrepid adventurer comes across some centuries-old traditions and colourful characters along the way discovering that "it's not just the scenery that changes when you go off the beaten track – the people do too."
