"Flying Scotsman From The Footplate" was excellent. It showed what the BBC can do with a properly thought out documentary. The crew were entertaining (once they got 60103 to move!), the camera work in-cab and lineside was excellent and just left to record things as they happened with no superfluous waffle or unnecessary incorrect facts. Great sound too and oddly the chime whistle sounded very weak from the footplate. Brilliant programme!
