Storyville: The Road - A Story Of Life And Death

BBC Four

 

 

Stretching from London to the Welsh Coast, the road has always been an important lifeline for new émigrés. Today, it is a microcosm of the wider world, and this documentary meets people from across the globe whose lives now orbit the road. From Irish immigrants like aspiring young singer Keelta, and Billy, an aging Irish labourer struggling to find meaning to his life, to glamorous German-born air hostess Brigitte, Austrian Peggy, 95, who lost most of her family during the Holocaust, and Iqbal, a Kashmiri hotel concierge trying to secure a visa for his wife so she can join him in London, their poignant stories of loss and the search for belonging are woven together into a rich tapestry of human experience.
