The Motorway

One of Channel 5’s prime time ‘hits’ the 3rd series of The Motorway achieved new highs, outperforming C4, BBC1 and BBC2, and is set to return for a 4th series in 2024.

With exclusive access to National Highways, the 20 x 60’ observational documentary series goes behind the scenes and out on the road with a hidden workforce of men and women under daily pressure to keep the motorways moving.  From the high-tech control centres watching over the motorways, the series reveals fast lane pile ups, medical emergencies and the very worst of British drivers on some of the world’s busiest motorways.

BARB: “C5’s top show of the day outperformed BBC One’s Fixing Unfair Britain, BBC Two’s Britain’s Top Takeaways and C4’s Food Unwrapped.”
