The piece about the SVR was the final item on the BBC Midlands version of " Inside out" yesterday.
An amalgam of some of the earlier reports, with added footage of the flood damage, and an interview with the GM.
Great free publicity!

NBI email today from SVR Marketing

Just to give you the heads up that ‘Trainspotting Live’ will air this week starting at 8.00pm this evening (11th July) on BBC4.

The series will continue with episode 2 tomorrow evening (12th July) at 8.00pm and episode 3 Wednesday evening (13th July) at 8.00pm. Looking at the episode descriptions we think the SVR will feature in episode 3.

BBC4 spent a day with us last month filming young volunteers and apprentices, the Diesel Depot and on the footplate of both a diesel and steam locomotive. We’re not sure what made the final cut however, so keep your eyes peeled!

Most of the footage appears to have made the programme last night, and was probably the best part of the programme, particularly the interviews with the apprentices and volunteers.

Least said overall about the series the better though!

Andrew Christie shared a post to the group: Unofficial Severn Valley Railway Facebook group.

The BBC have informed me that filming they did earlier in the year at the SVR and around railways of the UK will be aired soon on BBC 1 and BBC 4.
Series is called "Railways: The Making of a Nation".
It is planned that one programme will be aired on BBC 1 on the 28th September at 19.30 hrs, the series then moves to BBC 4 for the following dates:
Thurs 29th Sept 20:00 Time
Thurs 6th Oct 20:00 Capitalism & Commerce
Thurs 13th Oct 20:00 The Age of Leisure
Thurs 20th Oct 20:00 The New Commuters
Thurs 27th Oct 20:00 Food & Shopping
Thurs 3rd Nov 20:00 A Touch of Class
It has been hinted that the SVR appears in the last programme but I'm going to try and watch them all!

Ithought it was a well made episode. There was jumping from line to line through a voice over but otherwise I have little to critisise

The lion's share of the sequences were from the SVR, but as Dave mentions there was much jumping about, sometimes in quite brief sequences, from one line to another, SVR/GCR/NYMR an so-on, all in quick succession.

A good programme though and well worth watching. Even Mr Wolmar came over well in his extended on-train discussion with the presenter.

The drone shots of 34027 well depicted the beautiful countryside in "the valley".
