TV debate over 4x4s in the Peak Park

A TV documentary about the challenge of managing opposing views on 4x4 vehicles and trail bike use on green lanes in the Peak District National Park is to be screened this weekend.

Fly-on-the-wall film maker Richard Macer spent a year following staff from the Peak District National Park Authority’s rights of way team for the documentary Tales from the National Parks.

The programme will be shown on BBC4 at 9pm on Sunday, October 30 and features residents and protest groups wanting 4x4s and trail bikes banned from Byways Open to All Traffic in the national park – and motor vehicle users fighting to keep their legal rights to continue using these unsurfaced countryside routes.
