We Dont Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy by Caseen GainesA behind-the-scenes look at the making of the wildly successful and beloved Back to the Future trilogy, just in time for the 30th anniversary
Long before Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled through time in a flying DeLorean, director Robert Zemeckis, and his friend and writing partner Bob Gale, worked tirelessly to break into the industry with a hit. During their journey to realize their dream, they encountered unprecedented challenges and regularly took the difficult way out.
For the first time ever, the story of how these two young filmmakers struck lightning is being told by those who witnessed it. We Donít Need Roads includes original interviews with Zemeckis, Gale, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Huey Lewis, and over fifty others who contributed to one of the most popular and profitable film trilogies of all time.
With a focus not only on the movies, but also the lasting impact of the franchise and its fandom, We Donít Need Roads is the ultimate read for anyone who has ever wanted to ride a Hoverboard, hang from the top of a clock tower, travel through the space-time continuum, or find out what really happened to Eric Stoltz after the first six weeks of filming. So, why donít you make like a tree and get outta here Ė and start reading! We Donít Need Roads is your density.

A huge part of the Bloodhound project is focused on inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. Over 4, primary and secondary schools have signed up to find out more about the Bloodhound through the projects education programme, taking the project into the heart of the community and society.
