Win a copy of Full Steam Ahead – Victorian Railways


Hop on board for Full Steam Ahead – Victorian Railways, a brand new series from the team that brought us Victorian Farm. ­­­­It arrives on DVD on 5 September 2016 courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label, following its run on BBC Two.

This fascinating six-part series follows well-known historians Peter Ginn, Alex Langlands and Ruth Goodman as they set off down the line on an old-fashioned locomotive, visiting different parts of the country and immersing themselves in the workings of the railways. They get their hands dirty from driving the train, to working in the station, manning the signal box and learning how to run every aspect of a 19th and early 20th century railway.

The age of steam was an era of extraordinary change which utterly transformed every aspect of British life – from trade and transportation to health and recreation. This series reveals how the world we live in today was entirely shaped by the railways, charting the glorious evolution of the rail transportation and how it left its mark on every aspect of our life, landscape and culture.

Full Steam Ahead – Victorian Railways features six hour long episodes and makes its way to DVD on 5 September 2016.

All aboard for this eye-opening trip back in time.
