Your attention is drawn to BBC 2 at 10pm on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th November to the first and second parts of the above series about the modernisation of St Pancras to accomodate the Eurostar services. The third episode is on Tuesday 20th Nov - but no information on time or date of the broadcasting of the last three parts - I cannot track them down on the BBC website, alas.

Regards,

Hi Neil,

Watched the whole Opening ceremony on BBC - Broadband service only, I wrote to the Beeb and complimented them and asked if the opening ceremony could/would be broadcast on T.V. no hope aparently, it was a marvelous ceremony and about time that RAILWAYS had some good press, at least it was far superior to all the deprassing news wde get from around the world. The D.V.D.'s you hope for will not be released on DVD - at least that was what I was told by the beeb. perhaps we should all gang up on them and insist!!

I don't think they realise what an untapped market this is.

I thought the series was a bit disappointing. Too much "on no, I'm stressed" drama. Not enough engineering stuff that would have been interesting. And it was on too late 11:20pm if I remember rightly.

I agree, it should have been a showcase for the rather good new station, instead it was a fly on the wall about the stress of a big building project.

Whats next, will we get to vote of the engineer/architect we like the least?


I am very disappointed, the best view I have had of the new station was on the BBC new report on day of opening, I expected a bit more of a fan fare than that!

I would have preferred to have seen more of the actual engineering problems that had to be solved as well. It was a bit too much about personalities rather than the actual station for my liking.

It was apparently the public relations team who had the idea of the large statue 'The Meeting' - I'm glad that was the only visible thing that they had a hand in - there might have been even more rubbish about!

Regards,
John
