Billy Connolly's Route 66
Actor Billy Connolly has had a lifelong dream of travelling the world's most famous highway, picturesque Route 66 in the United States. This programme follows Connolly as he traverses the 2488-mile road that stretches from Chicago to Santa Monica, Calif. While travelling the road on his Boom motor-trike, Connolly meets the disciples of Route 66, including veterans of the highway and first-timers on the road. He also learns about key figures and events, past and present, that have shaped the diverse culture and character of the U.S. The programme is set to a soundtrack of some of the best American music of the 20th century (perhaps even `(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66').
