Billy Connolly’s Route 66
Wednesdays at 7:30pm AEST from April 5 until April 26
World renowned comedian and motorbike enthusiast, Billy Connolly, drives that road… The iconic Route 66 – Chicago to St. Louis, Missouri, USA, was officially decommissioned 25 years ago, but Billy gets the maps out to prove you can still follow the ultimate Route. Along this culturally significant path, we learn about the characters and places associated with the road’s history.
Billy travels from gangster Al Capone’s illegal alcohol transports to the ‘secret town’ Los Alamos, New Mexico, where the atomic bomb was developed and tested. More than a travelogue, Billy gives us delving insight into a legend.
