The Route Masters: Running London's Roads

NOMINATED FOR A BAFTA FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY SERIES 2014

London’s population has grown by a million in the last ten years. The city’s roads are full to bursting. And yet eight out of ten Londoners still depend on them every day. Every morning, 8,500 buses carry six million passengers – double that of the Tube. They are the lifeblood of the city. And it’s all overseen by the biggest and most technologically advanced traffic control centre in the world.  Filmed across a year, this ambitious, Bafta-nominated series goes to the heart of the battle to keep Britain’s iconic capital on the move. Through the hard work and passion of Transport for London’s 25,000 frontline workers, from bus drivers to road fixers, we tell the extraordinary story of one of the world’s busiest cities as it adapts to life in the fast lane of the 21st century.
