The Tube

This week, Jackie Dalton explores the mysterious world of the London Underground. The underground is like a separate world altogether, with its own unofficial code of behaviour. We find out what is considered acceptable behaviour and what is not and ask whether travellers on the tube are less polite than they used to be.

You can also try our quiz in the Extras section below to practise some of the language used in the programme and you can refer to the vocabulary table below for helpful phrases.
