Story Of The London Underground: If any institution could more readily come to stand for modern London than the Tube then I have yet to think of it. Historian and author Robin Bextor follows the story behind its construction on the way to becoming the first underground system on this planet. This film also questions why the Tube is the way it is, how it affects our lives and how it has changed over the years. Story of the Spitfire: Is there any other plane that is so loved by its pilots? World War II veterans say it is a pleasure to fly, there was a magic about this magnificent plane.

The instantly recognisable Supermarine Spitfire is one of the most famous fighter aircraft used in the Battle of Britain in 1940. Had they not been there the outcome of the Battle of Britain could have turned out very different... Ever wanted to know more about the amazing feat of engineering that potentially changed the course of World War II? Then this is the DVD for you! Flying Scotsman: Illustrated by evocative footage of the engine working on the British railway network in various guises, this programme traces the story from the time when the locomotive returned from Australia after achieving its most recent record - the world s longest non-stop run behind steam - up to its acquisition by the nation and the National Railway Museum at York. Also includes Story of the HMS Victory.
