History of Britain's Railways Vol.1: The Cradle of Railways (60-mins)


History of Britain's Railways Vol.1: The Cradle of Railways (60-mins)

Ref: GU097D


This programme traces the history of the railways of the North East of England and those major companies which came together to form the London and North Eastern Railway.

· Archive footage from the 1950s & 1960s.

· Film of preserved locomotives.

· Narration by Ken Morgan.

· A one hour film.

The early days of George Stephenson and the pioneering engineers are told with reference to museum and reproduction locomotives, whilst the developments of the successor railways to the Stockton and Darlington, the North Eastern Railway, the Great Northern, Great Eastern and Great Central are told through archive footage of their locomotives in the 1950s.

Further footage from the 1950s and 1960s adds to this, whilst preserved locomotives such as the Flying Scotsman and Mallard take the story on to the present day, with Class 91s on the electrified East Coast Main Line.

The archive footage includes film of locomotives such as Gresley's P1 2-8-2, North Eastern and Great Northern Atlantics and 4-4-0s and Great Eastern 'Hikers'.

Decades of Steam - 1920's (60-mins)


Decades of Steam - 1920's (60-mins)

Ref: GU123D


Decades of Steam the 1920's on DVD, celebrating the classic age of steam.

This is the first of a series of five 100 per cent archive film programmes which trace the story of steam locomotives during the middle years of the 20th Century.

- Produced and Directed by Jeremy English

- 100% archive film

- Approximately 1 hour running time

Our starting point is the great amalgamation, the Grouping, of the Victorian companies in 1923 to form the "Big Four" railways: the Great Western, the Southern, the London, Midland & Scottish and the London & North Eastern. Using unique archive film of the late 1920s, we first examine the stock inherited from the constituent companies.

We then look at the first new types introduced by the "Big Four". Many rare scenes are included for the first time on DVD, and locomotives shown include, along with many others, Great Western 'Dukes', 'Dean Goods', 'Aberdares', 'Counties', 'County Tanks' and 'Metro' Tanks; Southern 'Ds', 'M7s', "Lord Nelsons' and Beattie well tanks; LMS ex-LNWR 4-4-0s and 2-6-2Ts, Midland '2Ps' and ex-GSWR Baltics tanks; LNER ex-Great Central 4-6-0s, Atlantics and 'A1' Pacifics. Many pregrouping liveries are also seen.

Decades of Steam 1930's on DVD, celebrating the classic agea of steam.

The second of these five 100% archive film programmes takes the story of the steam locomotive in Great Britain into the cold years of the Depression.

- Produced and Directed by Jeremy English

- 100% archive film

- Approximately 1 hour running time

For the railways it was a period of austerity as they tried to meet the competition of the roads. The GWR, LMS and LNER embarked on massive steam locomotive construction programmes to replace the many different types inherited in 1923, although the Southern pursued its own agenda of electrification in order to eliminate steam.

In this programme we visit familiar and not-so-familiar locations to see steam at work, from the great main lines to rural branches. Locomotives seen include: Great Western 'Halls', Panniers, Prairies, 'Kings' and 'Castles'; Southern Maunsell-designed classics; LMS 'Duchesses', 'Black 5s', 8Fs', 'Jubilees' and 'Royal Scots'; LNER Pacifics, including streamlined 'A4' Silver Jubilee.

Decades of Steam - 1940's (60-mins)

Ref: GU125D


Decades of Steam 1940's on DVD, celebrating the classic agea of steam.

In this, the third of five 100% archive film programmes, the story of steam locomotives is taken through the end of independence into the early days of Nationalisation.

- Produced and Directed by Jeremy English

- 100% archive film

- Approximately 1 hour running time

The first half of the decade saw the railways at the forefront of the war effort, from which the black-painted steam locomotives emerged bloodied but unbowed, still the principal power force on the railways.

Nationalisation in 1948 was to see a unified system, with locomotives straying to lines away from their traditional haunts. We see them on trial and bearing their new owner's name in full - 'British Railways'. Postwar types such as Ivatt tanks and Moguls, ex-GWR 'Modified Halls', ex-LNER Peppercorn-designed Pacifics and Thompson 'B1s' are seen alongside the prewar survivors, and, most radical of all, the Bulleid Pacifics of the Southern.

Decades of Steam 1950's on DVD, celebrating the classic age of steam.

During the 1950s - which is the decade covered by this, the fourth in a series of five 100% archive film programmes - the steam locomotive was seen as an anachronism which had to be replaced by 'modern' power.

- Produced and Directed by Jeremy English

- 100% archive film

- Approximately 1 hour running time

However, British Railways had over 20,000 steam engines at the beginning of the decade, to which it added a further 999 examples - the well known Standard types. This programme traces the last full decade of steam locomotive development by examining each of the regions of British Railways, and setting the scene for steam's final years.

Decades of Steam - 1960's (60-mins)

Ref: GU127D


Decades of Steam 1960's on DVD, celebrating the classic agea of steam.

The 1960s were to see the end of main line steam locomotion on the public railway network in Great Britain. This, the final part of a series of five 100% archive film programmes, traces the last years of main line steam.

- Produced and Directed by Jeremy English

- 100% archive film

- Approximately 1 hour running time

The cruel blows of the Beeching 'axe' were to see many branch lines destroyed forever, and the scrapping of their trains. Main line electrification and dieselisation would make even the famous 'Duchesses, 'Kings', 'A4s', and Bulleid Pacifics redundant.

However, a small gleam of light appeared on the horizon as railway preservation got underway, but after 11 August 1968 only one steam locomotive, Flying Scotsman, was allowed to see out the decade working on the main lines.

From the Standard classes built by BR itself through to one-offs, there were many steam classes still at work in the 1960s, and this programme includes '9Fs', 'Britannias', 'West Countries', 'Jubilees', 'Castles', Gresley-designed Pacifics and many goods and tank engines as they pass into history.

History of Britain's Railways - Commuters and Holidays (60-mins)


History of Britain's Railways - Commuters and Holidays (60-mins)

Ref: GU095D


The Southern part of England was dominated by two great railway systems, the Great Western Railway and those lines which came together to form the Southern Railway. This programme examines the way these railways affected the lives of the people who used them and those who continue to use the same lines.

· Archive footage dating back to the 1930s.

· Featuring the Great Western Railway & Southern Railway.

· Narration by Ken Morgan.

· A one hour film.

The Great Western had a continuity of history that the other railways envied. We touch on the early days and the broad gauge as we set the scene using museum and reproduction locomotives and artifacts. Much of the GWR's continuity was underlined by its locomotive policy and we illustrate its growth with footage of the 1930s which shows many of the early locomotives still in use.

Other footage takes us into the 1950s and 1960s and on into the present day.

The Southern was built from three major systems. The earliest railway in the South, the Canterbury & Whitstable, is seen in the 1950s, but other parts of the story involve both black & white and full colour footage of the 1930s.

The steam era is taken to its close whilst the Southern Electric takes us right up to today. Archive film includes such items as 'Stars', 'Metro Tanks', the rebuilding of Leamington Spa Station, 'Paddleboxes' and the 'Southern Belle'.

The Very Best of British Steam of Yesteryear (58-mins)


The Very Best of British Steam of Yesteryear (58-mins)

Ref: GU112D


Steam officially retired from daily use in England on 11th.August 1968, but thanks to the efforts of a dedicated band of enthusiasts who during the 1950s and 1960s set out to record this fascinating part of everyday life, it is still possible yo enjoy the sights and sounds of British steam at work.

This special production features a selection of the most interesting lines from all around the old British railways network including:

  • The Waverley Route:- passenger and freight trains on this scenic cross border route to Scotland that enjoyed its heyday in the 1950s.

  • The North East:- some of the last steam hauled coal trains around the Sunderland area.

  • The East Coast Main Line in the 1960s featuring Kings Cross and Knebworth.

  • Worcester to Paddington:- join the crew of a Castle Class 4-6-0 as they work an express paseenger train to London.

  • The South East:- atmospheric action in the late 1950s at Redhill.

  • Bournemouth:- spend time at this popular station in the late 1960s.

  • The Somerset & Dorset:- a chance to revisit (possibly) the most famous closed line of them all!

  • The North West:- splendid main line action through the beautiful Westmorland countryside, including banking over Shap Summit.

Railway Roundabout 1958 (55-mins)

Ref: GU101D


In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the BBC broadcast a series of television programmes called Railway Roundabout, featuring train lines which proved to be on the point of closure and locomotives that were about to disappear forever.

This archive film footage has been transformed by Ian Allan and is now available as eight separate Railway Roundabout DVDs, all superbly recreating the lost age of steam!

Highlights of this fascinating DVD include views of the 'Bristolian' in the days of steam and trains in action on the Lickey incline.

We then go on a journey to Ireland to see the Irish narrow gauge in all its glory, then back to Southampton harbour for more steam scenes.

The Hayling Island branch is also included as is the Cardigan branch.

Finally we hop on board the very last train from Abergavenny to Merthyr.

Filmed in Black & White and colour.

Roy Noble presents this documentary chronicling the history of Cardiff, one of Europe's leading maritime cities. Archive newsreel footage and rare colour amateur film combine to show how the city has developed over the years, with busy scenes of streetlife from the ages of horse drawn carts, electric trams and steam trains, plus of course the bustling docks. Also examined is how the city fared through two world wars, and the tragedy of Aberfan. Leading public figures featured include Prime Ministers David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, and there is also footage of the city honouring several generations of royalty, from King George V to Prince William.

Glasgow Through The Ages (55-mins)


Glasgow Through The Ages (55-mins)

Ref: GU141D


Presented by Scottish television's Angus Simpson, Glasgow Through the Ages takes us on a journey through one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in Europe.

From its pre-eminent position as the British Empire's second city and as the self-proclaimed 'workshop of the world', the story of Glasgow has been one of dramatic peaks and troughs.

In the 19th century the city fathers constructed a stunning legacy of grand buildings and bold statements around this already ancient city. They managed this because of the vast wealth generated from the heavy industries along the Clyde. Buildings such as the university and the city chambers reflected a city full of riches with an optimistic future.

It was the 20th century that brought the real drama and challenge for Glasgow and its resilient population. As the British empire contracted, so Glasgow fell on hard times, becoming the 'no mean city' of popular legend where slums such as the Gorbals became a by-word for urban deprivation and whose rebellious workforce on 'Red Clydeside' fought the disintegration of the traditional industries, bringing the city to the edge of chaos in the process.

Astonishingly the city reinvented itself once more. After some hard years Glasgow rediscovered some of its old talents in design and architecture, business and tourism. Charles Rennie Mackintosh's architectural genius was recognised at last and Alexander Thomson's great churches were saved and a new generation of artists like Pete Howson came to the fore, while the past was enshrined in the modern building of the Burrell collection.

'Glasgow's miles better' was the campaign and when, in 1990, the city was made European city of culture, the rest of the world was made to believe it.

The one constant in the life of the city for the past 100 years has been the sporting battle between the 'old firm' of Celtic and Rangers and the passion burns as brightly as it always has done.

Glasgow Through the Ages covers British sport's most enduring and intense rivalry from the beginning of the century to the present day.

This programme brings you the life and times of an extraordinary city through unique insights into people and the places that have seen it survive and endure to eventually thrive and reclaim its place as the second city of Britain.
