ROUTE 66

Life­style 7.30pm, Seven

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Sunday Highlights - – LT

When the bravado of Billy Con­nolly meets the marvel of Route 66, a rare thing hap­pens - Con­nolly is bear­able.

Doubt­ful that it was out of choice, but when the Bri­tish co­me­dian tells the story of this long road, its boom­ing his­tory shad­ows the age­ing show­man.

Click­ing up a mileage of miles and mem­o­ries on his tri­cy­cle, Con­nolly hits Ok­la­homa City as it suf­fers from a sick­en­ing drought. He rolls on through the ghost towns of Texas and meets two hum­ble men who helped build the world’s dead­li­est bomb.
