New TV Series

Still from Railways: The Making of a Nation 
The first of six episodes was shown on BBC1 at 7.30 this evening - the second is on BBC4 at 7.30 tomorrow.   In the first episode the Midland Railway featured, including Matthew Kirtley (born Tanfield), but much was about the share owning which developed with railways, including Hudson's rise & fall.  Opinion - better than Trainspotting Live.
