Is there a finer sight than the grace and power of a huge steam locomotive on the
move? The award-winning television programme maker, David Parker, spent
12 months filming the rebuilding of perhaps the most famous of them all, Flying
Scotsman. In this illustrated talk David will show clips from programmes he has
made about both Flying Scotsman and steam railways in Britain, a joyous
celebration of the men and women who saved some of the country’s most
picturesque branch lines and the steam engines that run on them. We’ll hear their
incredible stories, and see glorious and rare film of the steam engines, including
Flying Scotsman.
