The Route Masters: Running London's Roads

Every morning in London there are 8,500 buses carrying a stagggering six million passengers to work and school.

With so many Londoners relying on the service, it's hardly surprising that it takes more than 25,000 workers to keep the capital's traffic moving.

This new series, from the makers of The Tube, meets some of the larger-than-life characters battling behind-the-scenes to keep things running smoothly.

Meet the bus drivers, road menders and staff at the world's biggest traffic control centre as they share the highs and lows of keeping London on the move.
