TRACTION 2003 Part 1

We thought we had covered just about every working imaginable in the previous 15 programmes in this series. We were wrong!! and no one is more surprised than us, because yet again we have more than enough footage to fill 90 minutes with just 5 months!! Here’s a small taster of what you can expect to see…
