Continuingthe new seven-part series for independent travellers.

Magenta DeVine and Simon O'Brien visit the two capitals of Italian culture, where right-wing politics has provoked a radical new movement in music. They meet some boys in high heels who long to be girls, others with a passion for football and their team, Fiorentina, and track down an opera singer who is just as concerned with her weighing scales as her musical ones. In Venice, they are welcomed by Tina Turner and Madonna - as portrayed by alternative cabaret star Ennio Marchetto - and meet the young men in uniform who drive the local women wild.

Plans to build a string of by-passes along the stretch of tarmac linking Bath with the south coast - known to some as the A36 corridor and to others as "death valley" - have provoked passionate and divisive feelings among the local communities. The former stagecoach route has been devastated by the thousands of cars and juggernauts that thunder along daily, but no one can agree what to do about them. Using testimonies of the people who live along the route, including writer Bel Mooney, this film documents the struggle over Solsbury Hill, an Iron Age fort and site of the proposed Batheaston by-pass, where protesters were dragged from the trees so that the bulldozers could do their work. Narrated by David Stafford.
