Today we resumed our normal truck coverage with a visit to Junct 19 on the M6 which had two main features perhaps three, it is the first and last time we shall have completed a lorry DVD at this location, we catch the work in progress to reconfigure the junction with a new bridge taking Chester / Manchester bound traffic across the motorway rather than the roundabout. The tipper lorries of which there are many bear slogans applauding 'NHS Heroes' down the sides, some both sides other offside, some nearside, it will certainly put the film in its historical context. The weather should have been clear blue sky, good old BBC, wrong yet again but hopefully it won't turn out bad with a bit of tweaking. After this with more cloud about I went down to an old standby location I have used a lot, the A500 west from the M6 towards Crewe.
The main feature of that was a plaque of those horrid big flies with the legs which hand down. When the sun vanished and the temperature dropped the flies vanished in seconds, amazing. No hassles filming, all the police that passed returned mt waves, we hope by returning to normal people can enjoy the video and photos without having to put themselves at risk. As soon as our face mask order gets to us from China we shall restart our bus coverage, hopefully picking up where we left off on our to do list of which there are many locations. I'll start editing the truck films tonight and try to get it on Youtube which has now virtually collapsed for us unlike the DVDs which are selling like it is perpetual Christmas. Here are shots from Junction 19 including the NHS heroes lorries.
