    The Definitive Collection of the celebrated BBC television series.

    Celebrate a bygone era with this incredible collection of programmes from the BBC s much loved TV series RAILWAY ROUNDABOUT.

    Prior to the publication of Dr Richard Beeching s landmark report The Reshaping of Britain s Railways, which in 1963 changed the face of rail travel in the UK forever, this series travelled the length and breadth of Britain filming the greatest locomotives, railways, stations and trains in operation during the late 1950s and early 1960s. The result is a unique document of a distinct period in British transport history, when steam and diesel remained in operation even while electrification was being rolled out across the Britain and Europe.

    This collection brings together over 11 hours of RAILWAY ROUNDABOUT, taking in action from as far afield as Ireland, the Isle of Wight, Wales and even Europe, and also includes a special 3 hour journey back through time in the company of filmmaker P.B. Whitehouse, who revisits some of the series finest moments and provides exclusive commentary, offering an insight into the production of this cherished programme.

    Rail fans everywhere should rejoice at the news that Railway Roundabout is back!

    Please Note:

    These discs are (PAL) format, and will work on all modern Australian & European DVD players.
