Neil Walker and David Clayton link up with BBC Local Radio stations around the country to report on toll booths ancient and modern.
To the modem motorist, toll charges can either be a quaint anachronism from a bygone age, or downright highway robbery on top of a road-fund licence.
The Local Network compares the high cost of crossing the Humber with a cut-price rate over the River Ouse, at Selby. Meanwhile, a new bridge over the Thames could be really big business.

Today he sends his 2,000th letter.
Shazam! Not Just Kids'Stuff To George Orwell they were
'penny dreadfuls', offering little beyond 'bully worship and the cult of violence'. How have comic books and cartoon characters endured to become so inextricably intertwined with British culture, language and art? And why should they provide such a fertile ground of imagery and inspiration for poets, novelists and film-makers?

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
