  Ambulance Set To Return

BBC One has announced that a fifth series of the Bafta award-winning observational documentary Ambulance has been commissioned.

Renowned for its unflinching but humane insight into the frontline of emergency health care in the UK, Ambulance is expanding its coverage across the North West, featuring the work of paramedics in Liverpool and across the whole of Merseyside, a new set of faces will feature in this latest instalment (12x60’).

With unprecedented access to the crews, and the decision takers in the control centre the new series will also keep audiences up-to-date with the North West Ambulance Service’s work across Greater Manchester, as winter throws everything it has got at the service, pushing it to its limit.

Cameras will remain into spring, as the new teams in Merseyside face the complexities of making the life or death decisions that come with providing emergency medical care in their area.

The Hairy Bikers

The Hairy Bikers (Si King and Dave Myers) are about to embark on America’s Route 66, spanning over two thousand miles of tarmac from Chicago to California. The pair will motor through eight different states, all with their own distinct landscapes, history, flavours and people.

Coming to BBC Two later this year, The Hairy Bikers Ride Route 66 is a new 6 x 60’ episode series produced by Twofour.

The Bikers' journey will be carved into six legs, in which visit destinations like Chicago, St Louis and Las Vegas, and travel through incredible landscapes from vast prairies in Oklahoma to the Grand Canyon. The breadth of food on offer will allow them to experience everything from the very latest L.A. trends to regional specialities that only the locals know about.

Si King said: “America has a multicultural food scene and is the home of some outrageous food. We’re all accustomed to the supersized portions and all-you-can-eat challenges that the USA has become known for, but we’ll be seeking out the best and most diverse cuisine this fascinating country has to offer.”

Dave Myers said: “Route 66 is a bucket-list trip for us and it truly is an American dream to take in the sights and scenery of this part of the world - all whilst enjoying some delicious local delicacies along the way.”

David Brindley, Head of Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment, said: “It’s always a joy to have the Hairy Bikers on our screens, and they are sure to bring the excitement and thrill of this iconic cross-country road trip to audiences on BBC Two later this year.”
