This new timely documentary follows the team at Alton Towers Resort in Staffordshire, the UK's largest theme park, as they prepare to re-open after a period of prolonged closure due to Covid-19.

Once the government greenlight is given, there are only 12 days to prepare for re-opening. The pressure is on for Operations Director, Francis Jackson, and his staff to ensure that the rides and hospitality are fully operational and compliant with new health and safety guidelines, requiring some major re-thinking.

From employees returning from furlough, to families and friends emerging from months of lockdown, this promises to be a warm and insightful look at how one of Britain's most popular tourist attractions balances a business-critical year.

Alton Towers: A Rollercoaster Year airs Tuesday 3rd November at 10:15pm on Channel 4.
