Tales of Resistance - The Battle of the Newbury Bypass (UK, 98mins, 2017, Jamie Lowe)

The story of the 1996 battle to stop the building of the Newbury Bypass, told from the activist’s point of view.

Created from hundreds of hours of footage, as well as contemporary interviews, it has been distilled into an evocative and historic film.

A defining account that shines a light on the people whose actions ultimately blocked a government road building programme.
