Description

STORY OF THE LONDON UNDERGROUND DVD: If any institution could more readily come to stand for modern London than the Tube than I have yet to think of it. People all over the world know the Underground and its distinctive logo. Yet there are many stories behind this great institution and they are there to be told in this 150th anniversary year. Practical, egalitarian, efficient, popular, logical, organised and yet infuriating, maddening, and confusing it stands for everything modern life does in this great World capital. For most Londoners we have taken the Tube for granted for decades, a huge resource that links us to our work, friends, entertainment and to every facet of life in this City. It s the place the American Werewolf romped unfettered, it s the station at midnight that Paul Weller immortalized, we are all in the army Gary Numan enlisted, and we think of Gerry Rafferty as we rattle through Baker Street. We know those Sliding Doors, When you hear that distant rumble it really is London calling. Historian and author Robin Bextor follows the story behind its construction on the way to becoming the first underground system on this planet. This film also questions why the tube is the way it is, how it affects our lives and how it has changed over the years. (55 min) LITTLE BOOK OF THE LONDON UNDERGROUND: Join the Tubeway Army of One Billion... If any institution could more readily come to stand for modern London than the Underground system than I have yet to think of it. Practical, egalitarian, efficient, popular, logical, organised and yet infuriating, maddening, and confusing it stands for everything modern life does in this great World capital. For most of our lives we simply take the Tube for granted, a huge resource that links us to our work, our friends, our entertainment and to every facet of life in the City. The Underground is dependable, ever present-it s that gentle giant that rumbles in the distance, those familiar red circles on the street, and yet it wasn t always like that. But then London wasn t always like it is today. In this special book meet the men who created this amazing resource, the pioneers who envisaged a joined up City and learn about the failures and successes, the secrets, the missing stations, the urban myths, and the way the Tube has become a vital part of our lives. Plus there are more fascinating facts than you can imagine. Think about London and you can t help but think about the Tube. Hop on but mind the gap. One billion Londoners can t be wrong. (128 pages)
