This series does exactly what it says on the tin – prepare for live footage from the Didcot Heritage Railway Centre of the British tradition of trainspotting.
While the hobby doesn’t exactly have a rep for being enthralling, it has not been totally eradicated just yet, as demonstrated by the fact that thousands of trainspotters turned out for the inaugural run of The Flying Scotsman train this year.
The show gives an insight into British history, travel and engineering. It will also include segments from different railway sites around the world.
Presented by Newsnight’s Peter Snow and co-hosted by presenter Dick Strawbridge and mathematician Dr Hannah Fry, the show airs over three consecutive nights.
