The Independent Culture

Indulge your inner trainspotter with these delightful British Transport documentaries from the 1950s and 1960s, which feature night-time fluffers clearing the Tube tracks, operators in the central control room flicking switches and line men maintaining the “modern” signaling system.

The evocative images are accompanied by cheery commentary: “Here are the passengers, cooks, cleaners and BBC types.” Soothing.
