Bernina Express (75-mins)


Bernina Express (75-mins)

Ref: MT748D


Step aboard the famous Bernina Express for the spectacular journey over the Swiss Alps from St.Moritz in Switzerland to Tirano in Italy, the highest open crossing in the whole of Europe. This wonderful line is operated by Rhaetian Railway, the largest private railway company in the country.

Before joining the train at St.Moritz, we mingle with the rich at play at some of the glamorous winter equestian events which take place each year on the thick ice covering the frozen lake. We then climb aboard our train in January to begin this magical 60km journey. The line winds its way through deep snow towards the white-capped Bernina mountain range, over which our route passes. We pause to join in on ski fun on the Diavolezza pistes, look at the Morteratsch glacier and meet some unusual railway employees.

At Alp Grum we change seasons and make a breathtaking descent towards Italy in warm summer sunshine. The line loses more that 1500 metres in height to reach Tirano and this is accomplished by several horseshoe tunnels and loops culminating in the unique spiral viaduct at Brusio. Our journey ends just over the Italian border at Tirano, with its famous 16th. century church.

Extras: The modern Bernina Express panoramic stock in operation during summer 2002, various train movements around Alp Grum and Cavaglia, a visit to St.Moritz and the Ponttresina region, and the vistas from the Muottas Muragi viewing pint in summer and winter.

Also available is a companion DVD, "The New Glacier Express" showing the spectacular journey across Switzerland from Zermatt toSt.Moritz,

The New Glacier Express (Zermatt - Disentis - St.Moritz)


The New Glacier Express (Zermatt - Disentis - St.Moritz)

Ref: MT767D


A two part programme travelling with the world famous Glacier Express service along the Alpine backbone of Switzerland from the mountain resort of Zermatt to the international town of St. Moritz. These programmes were filmed during the 1990s when the route was run by three railway companies, the BVZ, the Furka-Oberlap Bahn (now amalgamated to form the Matterhorn-Gotthard Bahn) and the Rhaetian Railway.

Our journey begins at Zermatt, the mountain resort dominated by the distinctive peak of the Matterhorn. We admire the spectacular panoramic views from the top of the Gornergrat before joining the train for the ride along the scenic BVZ line to the Rhone valley. At Brig we take the opportunity to visit the Stockalper palace, before journeying along the spectacular FO line through the lush countryside of the Goms region. We break our journey to visit the magnificent Aletsch Glacier, and the picturesque village of Ernen.

Further along the route we pass through the Furka Tunnel to emerge into the wild Urseren valley. At Andermatt we make a diversion along the formidable Schöllenen Gorge before rejoining the train for a fabulous winter run through deep snow as the track snakes up the mountainside. We continue our summer expedition at the Oberaip pass, the summit of the line.

At Disentis, dominated by the huge Benedictine monastery, we make on end-on connection with the Rhaetian Railway whose line takes us through the majestic Rhine gorge. We leave the train to join a thrilling river-rafting expedition down the "Swiss Grand Canyori''

Before making a reversal at Chur we take the opportunity to explore the old city, capital of the region since Roman times. Our way now takes us along the impressive Albula line with its lofty viaducts and spiral tunnels. We make diversions to visit the Via Mala, the picturesque village of Bergun, and see some of the older steam and electric iocos of the RhB in action.

Our journey ends at the world-famous resort of St. Moritz, sited in the beautiful Engadine valley, a fitting conclusion to our luxurious journey across Swtzerland.

An unforgettable journey through some of the most scenic regions of Switzerland. Filmed from train, helicopter, trackside and cab. Informative commentary and music. An English language leaflet accompanies the two DVDs, one PAL and one NTSC, which are multi language with a choice of English, German, French, Italian, and Japanese.

This is the official Glacier Express DVD made by MITV in collaboration with BVZ/FO/RhB

The RhB Albula Line


The RhB Albula Line

Ref: MT751D


Join us for a special journey along the Rhaetian Railway's spectacular Albula Line from the city of Chur to the internationally famous resort of St.Moritz. We make the trip in a mixed passenger-goods train hauled by one of the historic Ge 6/6 "baby crocodile" locomotives which were running on a daily basis on 1989 but which now only haul special excursions.

We begin out journey at Chur, capital of the Canton of Graubunden and look around the old city before borading the train. This is the original line of the RhB and was constructed through some particularly difficult terrain, so the way passes through numerous tunnels and over some spectacular viaducts incuding the Solis and Landwasser, which are amongst the most photographed bridges in Switzerland. After Filisur the line becomes especially steep and in order to avoid rack assistance the railway builders utilised spiral tunnels and loops along the valley sides. The summit of the line is in a 5km long tunnel.

Along the way we pause to look at some of the traditional villages and join in with special celebrations held to mark the centenary of the line.

Journey's end is at the popular resort of St.Moritz, situated in the Engadine valley beside the lake which bears its name. Our run with the "crocodile" is now an archive journey and a reminder of the history of the route.

Heli-View RhB Bernina Line: Pontresina to Tirano (110-mins)

Ref: MT708D


An unusual perspective of the journey along the Rhaetian Railway's spectacular Bernina Line as we take to the air to follow the train from Pontresina in Switzerland to Tirano in Italy. Mainly the helicopter view but with cab views and some additional line-side and train shots. Filmed from Pontresina to Alp Grum in winter and then the remainder of the journey in summer. Because the temperature in winter on take-off was -26 degrees celsius and dropped to -40 degrees by the summit, we were only able to film for a limited time so the helicopter views do not begin until Morteratsch. The helicopter filming had to end at Campocologno as we were not allowed to fly across the international border into Italy. Stations and tunnels named on screen. English commentary.
