Unprecedented access to one of Britain’s most whinged-about industries

Britain has the oldest and one of the busiest railways in the world with 1.3bn journeys every year and rising. Whether it’s delays, overcrowding or fare rises, Britons all love to complain about the trains. Used to being the butt of complaints, the rail industry has always kept itself behind closed doors. Until now…

With unprecedented access to Network Rail, train companies including Virgin, East Coast, First Great Western and Northern, and the British Transport Police, this fascinating six-part observational documentary series goes behind the scenes of one of Britain’s biggest institutions.

Filmed over a year and across the country, this candid series gets to know the track-workers, train guards and management who are battling to keep Britain moving – where anything from suicidal people or an unlucky pheasant, to faulty signalling, cable thieves, and mother nature can all bring the railway to a grinding halt.

Told with humour, warmth and honesty, The Railway: Keeping Britain on Track reveals what’s really going on when passengers are left fuming on the platform.
