Highland Road Rescue

BBC One (1 x 30 mins)

Following the life and work of a tight knit recovery family in the Scottish Highlands, Our Lives offers an intimate insight into the difficulties they face rescuing stranded motorists from some of the wildest landscapes and challenging roads in Britain.

Recovery in The Highlands is a way of life passed from one generation to the next. Jamie and his sister Jean run the company their parents began in 1973.

Over the busiest month of the winter, they strive day and night to rescue everything from sports cars to 42 ton trucks. It’s tough work but they take great pride in seeing people safely on their way.
