A1: The Road Musical

Friday 29 August 2008

Part of Channel 4’s Generation Next season. A1: The Road Musical travels the A1 from London to Edinburgh to tell the surprising stories of ordinary people who live or work along the road, sung and spoken by the people themselves. Finding people local to the road through word of mouth and the press, Till interviewed them about their stories, adapted them as song lyrics and set them to music. He then coached, choreographed and directed their performances. The result is both a tragic-comic tale of love, life and lay-bys on the A1 and a compelling portrait of contemporary Britain.
