Railways: A great English journey

Take a journey on England's railways from the "golden age" of steam to the modern world of the commuter, using aerial, underground and drone footage.

Discover how railways have changed our lives and made an impact on the landscape.

This film also features time lapse photography and "on board" cameras to provide a dramatic train journey across England.

Railways: The Making of a Nation is on BBC Four from Thursday, 13 October and on the iPlayer thereafter.
