4472 Flying Scotsman
Technology Documentary hosted by Tony Wheeler, published by BBC in 1968 – English narration
This programme follows the attempt made to drive the ‘Flying Scotsman’ directly from London’s King’s Cross to Edinburgh’s Waverley station without stopping, just as it was done in 1928. There is some spectacular aerial photography of the train en route and we meet the engine’s owner, Alan Pegler, and some travellers and well wishers along the way. One of the passengers, a rather famous vicar and train enthusiast, explains how he first came to write stories about engines for his sick little boy, who insisted they were all given names.
