Locomotion: Dan Snow's History of Railways DVD - Description

This three-part documentary follows Dan Snow as he explores how Britain invented the railways and changed the world.

The first episode looks at the pioneering visionaries who built the first steam-drawn passenger railway in the world, the Liverpool and Manchester Railway.

He looks at the engineering challenges that had to be surmounted, including the famous crossing of Chat Moss.

The next instalment studies the mania for building new lines that followed in the years after the L&MR’s successful opening and the fortunes that were made and lost in the railway bubble.

The final programme examines the increasing need for regulation of safety on the lines as the rush for profit saw corners being cut and tragedy always lurking in the wings.
