1960, 1971 and 1975

In this programme we take an unauthorised trip in an amphibious car on the Shropshire Union Canal and we hear what happened when one MG driver – on his first European journey - was confronted at gunpoint by police on the Italian border. But first we start this episode by heading to 1960 and meet Sylvia Watts, who is turning her attention to the process of learning to drive.

We would love to hear from you if you have an idea to contribute to the Voices from the Road podcast! We have assembled a small editorial panel whose members will consider the merits of your idea. Once it gets the thumbs-up, we can agree the format of your contribution, and how the recording will take place. In its simplest form, it can be done via an online meeting, but if it deserves a little extra attention, then a recording on location or with a group of others is also possible. Do get in touch with your idea!
