Extreme Railways - Chris Tarrant  (141-mins)


Extreme Railways - Chris Tarrant (141-mins)

Ref: VI304D


This series sees TV legend Chris Tarrant embark on turbulent adventures as he travels around the globe to experience the world's most extreme trains. While en route, Chris finds himself stuck in the heart of an African jungle, traversing the Australian Outback and exploring the Monsoon Coast of India; all by some of the most spectacular railways on the globe.

Episode One - Congo's Jungle Railway

Chris heads to West Africa to experience the colonial Jungle Railway. Connecting Brazzaville on the Congo River to the coast, this 310-mile route remains a vital lifeline for both people and freight in a country with few roads and dense, impenetrable jungle.

Episode Two - Australia's Outback Railway

Taking on the 2,000 mile-long Adelaide to Darwin Railway, Chris crosses the desolation of the Australian Outback on a route known as 'The Ghan Line.' Dating back to the 1870s, the line took over 100 years to complete and today the original, abandoned sections of the line pass through deserted towns and by abandoned railway relics.

Episode Three - India's Monsoon Railway

For his final excursion, Chris ventures between Mumbai and Mangalore via the infamous Konkan railway. Battling monsoons and treacherous terrain, Chris explores why, despite 40,000 miles of track built in India by the British Empire, they steered clear of this perilous route.

As shown on Channel Five.

HST Tracks - The Valenta Scream


HST Tracks - The Valenta Scream

Ref: VI310D


From the 1970s to the 2000s, all Britain's best loved Intercity trains, (the ubiquitous HST High Speed Trains) were powered by Paxman Valenta diesel engines with their unique sound. Today these have been replaced by newer engines so no longer can one hear the iconic HSTs "scream" past.

Video 125 cameras happened to capture the sounds (and sights) of these iconic trains during their heyday, and this programme is a compilation of dozens of shots taken from our archive depicting various locations around the country. A series of runbys, without commentary, is not everybody's cup of tea but for those who lament the passing of these nostalgic sounds, this film will bring back happy lineside and platform memories.

Running time is 84 minutes and includes dozens of locations, all featuring HSTs from BR, GNER, Midland Mainline, Virgin Trains and First Great Western filmed between 1986 and 2006.* All soundtracks are 100% in broadcast-quality stereo.

*Some of these were included in Driver's eye view productions, but often cut short. Many of the shots have never been shown before.

Along These Lines


Along These Lines

Ref: VI905D


From unique nature reserves and public footpaths to the abandoned and completely wild trackbeds and former stations. Part social history, part industrial archaeology, the series is a travel programme too, touching different counties and unearthing local characters and the area's industrial past.

TV viewers in the South of England have been enjoying a great series of programmes exploring the paths of old railway lines. Presenter, Hannah Shellswell walks and cycles disused rail tracks, sometimes alone, sometimes in conversation.

In the course of her journey, Hannah learns many things - local and anecdotal, historical and significant. But, essentially, it's the story of people; some well-known names crop up - like Dr. Beeching, whose damning report axed so many lines and stations in the sixties ,or did history blame the wrong man?

All eight episodes in the series are included:

  1. Castleman's Corkscrew - Brockenhurst to Hamworthy
  2. Longmoor Military Railway - Bordon to Liss
  3. Somerset & Dorset Joint - Spetisbury and Sturminster Newton
  4. The Hawkhurst Branch - Paddock Wood to Hawkhurst
  5. Meon Valley Railway - Alton to Fareham
  6. East Kent Railway - Sheperdswell to Wingham

Learning To Steam - How to Drive a Steam Train


Learning To Steam - How to Drive a Steam Train

Ref: VI964D


This programme follows the steam learning curve through the eyes of Arfon Haines Davies. Arfon spent a week on the Great Central Railway finding out everything a trainee footplate member needs to know. Starting at the bottom, just as a real trainee would have done on BR, Arfon first becomes a cleaner then gradually progresses up the ladder with ex-Fireman Ray Martin teaching him the art of firing.

Ex-BR Driver Bill Gwilt then takes over to explain how to oil and prepare the loco followed by how to drive. Arfon then takes the controls of Clun Castle in charge of a seven coach "express" running from Loughborough Central to Rothley.

If you have ever wondered how a steam engine works or how they are maintained or driven, this best selling video is for you.

Look at Life in the 60s - Military Aviation (60-mins)


Look at Life in the 60s - Military Aviation (60-mins)

Ref: VI923D


The Rank Organisation produced a weekly series of short films entitled Look at Life for showing in Odeon cinemas up and down the country in the 1960s. Here ROB CURLING presents six of those films, showing various aspects of Military Aviation as it was in the 1960s.


Golden Wings: (1962) Just over ten years after the Wright brothers first flew in 1903, the First World War saw the rapid development of the aircraft for military purposes. Air Chief Marshal Sir Philip Joubert looks at those early aircraft which he actually used to fly….


Black Arrows: (1959) This is a film about the Black Arrows aerobatic team of Treble One squadron flying Hawker Hunters in 1959. Cameras film the team preparing for displays and then follow the action from the ground and in the cockpit.


Flight Deck (1960) Hermes was the Royal Navy’s largest aircraft carrier when filmed in 1960. Two decades before she became famous in the Falklands conflict, film cameras take us above and below decks to film the day to day operations including the take off and landings of aircraft such as the Fleet Air Arm’s Sea Vixens.


Test Pilot: (1961) This film follows the life of a test pilot flying one of the best loved jet fighters of all time – the English Electric Lightning, the Royal Air Force’s first supersonic fighter which had entered service just one year earlier.


Turning Blades: (1962) From fixed wing to rotary wing, Turning Blades looks at the world of the helicopter as it was in 1962. It shows helicopters such as the twin rotor Belevedere – the forerunner of the Chinook and the experimental Rotodyne VTOL aircraft.


Jumping Jets: (1965) Three years after that film was made, an altogether different approach to vertical take off and landing came in the form of the Kestrel – the forerunner of the Hawker Harrier….

Look at Life in the 60s - Civil Aviation

Ref: VI934D


The Rank Organisation produced a weekly series of short films for showing in Odeon cinemas up and down the country in the 1960s.


ROB CURLING presents six Look at Lifes from the Brooklands aircraft musuem, showing the aircraft industry as it was in the 1960s.


AIR HOSTESS (Heathrow 1960) This quirky film follows an early trolley dolly from her wake up call, through her bus ride with "envious glances" at the bus stop to her arrival right outside the Queen's building at "London Airport". A flight briefing from an ex RAF type Captain then follows. We then see Stewardess Pat go to the stores to stock up on items such as "6 oxygen sets", tea towels, bovril and salad cream. We then follow the stewardesses' work on board a Vickers Viscount en route to North Africa.


CONTROLLED LANDING (Heathrow 1961) Inside the control tower as ATC talk down an incoming Comet in fog. This recreation has its quirky flaws but nonetheless shows us inside the Heathrow control tower when radar was all valve-driven and sports jackets were the normal attire. We see inside the Comet and the flight deck of a simulator masquerading as the real thing. We then see the "Blind Landing Experimental Unit" trying out the "Ghost Pilot" on a Vickers Viking.


CITY OF THE AIR (Heathrow, Gatwick & Stansted 1963) This is a fascinating look at many aspects of "London Airport" in the BOAC and BEA era. The commentary speaks of the "9 million pounds turnover per year at Heathrow". Many aspects are covered from the building of the M4 motorway to the flight catering centre to the BOAC medical centre. We then look at Gatwick with its "1million passenger per year" and an undeveloped Stansted.


FLYING TO WORK (Various 1964) Private planes and helicopters with air taxi services "springing up all over the country". This film starts with Princess Alexandra boarding an Andover of the Queen's flight and Lord Robens boarding a Dove. Other features include Britain's first executive jet the Hawker Siddeley which cost "£225.000", the Beagle 206, Mr Ferranti's helicopter on its remote control launch pad and Battersea Heliport. There is even a "break for elevensees" at 5,000ft...


THE SPIRIT OF BROOKLANDS (Weybridge 1965) Britain's latest airliner the Super VC10 airliner is wheeled out in BOAC colours from the Vickers factory. There is a look back at the origins of the site from a 1960s perspective. High speed motor racing followed by aircraft manufacture starting with the Sopwith Camel in World War One. We then follow a VC10 from manufacturing to test flying.


THE BIG TAKE OFF (Farnborough, Filton, Bristol & Derby 1967) A look at the aviation industry. In 1967 the export TARGET was 200 million pounds per annum! Prince Phillip arrives by helicopter to see Islanders, a Skyvan, AVRO 748, BAC 111 and a handful of military aircraft such as the English Electric Lightning. We then visit the Rolls Royce factory at Derby to see various engines in production. Finally to Filton for the Olympus engine under test and the "140 seat" Concorde 002 in production.

Trains from the Arc


Trains from the Arc

Ref: VI950D


It was in the 1890s that the original experiments with cinematography took place in Britain, France and the USA. Trains were amongst the first subjects ever filmed and incredibly many of those clips have survived.

Originally published as three separate productions on videocassette, Trains from the Arc' consists of three episodes: Volume 1 Victorian Steam Railways (1895-1901) goes right back to the very start of cinematography and includes all known surviving railway film from the 19th century. Inevitably, scenes were often short and are repeated to give more historical commentary.

Volume 2 The Edwardian Scene (1902-1912) saw the invention of editing and the introduction of story films. It just so happens that the very first story film included trains.

Volume 3 The Pre-Grouping Years (1913-1925) shows much more sophisticated motion pictures, including such novel railways as the Listowel and Ballybunion monorail.

These three separate episodes are all now compiled onto just the one DVD. Presented by the late railway film historian John Huntley.

Colour production with black and white archive material.
