On The Road was Roland's first outside broadcast for TV-am.
Roland and Kevin toured the UK in the Ratmobile, visiting six
cities over the 1983 summer holidays. Starting in Cardiff, they
stayed in the grounds of the castle. London was the next port of
call where Roland checked in to a posh hotel, but Kevin made
them camp in Trafalgar Square.
Up to Edinburgh after that, where
they met Rory McPherson and wore kilts. Back down to Oxford the
following week taking in the University and Blenheim Palace.
A week in the North East followed,
in Newcastle, where Kevin was offered a part in the latest Sam Spiegelbiegel blockbuster and got stuck in a toilet
at Beamish museum.
The last destination was York, where they dressed as Vikings on the
Roman Wall - but the Ratmobile was driven away by the police!
The final week of Rat On The Road
saw Errol make his very first TV appearance from the VT room.
