Reviews

TV viewers in the South of England have been enjoying this great series of eight programmes made for ITV Meridian, exploring the paths of old railway lines. Along These Lines explores disused rail tracks and stations reconnecting people, places and moments in time. In the process, we uncover one of Britain's greatest natural heritages. Presenter Hannah Shellswell walks the disused rail tracks, sometimes alone, sometimes in conversation. Our journey takes us across contrasting landscapes to some of the most beautiful parts of the South and South East of England. From unique nature reserves and public footpaths to the abandoned and completely wild former tracks and stations. Part social history, part industrial archaeology, the series is a travel programme too, touching different counties and unearthing local characters and the area's industrial past; the personal stories and a way of life. In the course of her journey, Hannah learns many things - local and anecdotal, historical and significant. But, essentially, it's the story of people; some well-known names crop up - like Dr. Beeching, whose damning report axed so many lines and stations in the sixties, or did history blame the wrong man?

It was really by chance that i came across this DVD, and after a bit of thinking, i thought why not! and purchased it.
I have only watched 6 of the 8 episodes and i must say this series is brilliant. I had watched Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury [DVD] which was good, but i do feel in that series she diverged too much away from the railways, which while that is interesting, i do prefer the programmes being more railway based. Along these lines is focused mainly on the railway side of things rather than talking about nearby buildings and work places.
Along these lines is both informative and interesting, even if your not interested in railways at all! My favourite walk is featured in episode one so it was an instant hit with me. This dvd covers the majority of lost railways in the southern region, and gives an indepth description of the local area, what the railway was built for and what it carried, and what remains today.

"Along These Lines" is very similar in concept to the Railway Walks series on the BBC starring Julia Bradbury. This series, however, hails from the ITV stable, and each programme has an "advert break" in the middle. All of the walks are in the south of England, and are a charming mix of scenery and conversations with people related to the line being walked. Hannah Shellswell is too young to have been alive when these railways still had trains running, but her genuine bubbly enthusiasm makes her an excellent hostess. There are eight railways covered, some famous, some less so. This two disc set is great for use when there is a spare half-hour with nothing on live TV, or for watching several programme in a sitting if you have a free evening with a few hours to fill. Interesting for the wives as well as the train enthusiasts!
