London Transport Double Bill (PG)

Heavenly Films presents BBC Arena's Little Platform, Big Stage and Underground


Two classic BBC Arena documentaries about London Transport + Q&A with director Zimena Percival, BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms and Anthony Wall, Arena Series Editor, hosted by Travis Elborough, author of The Bus We Loved.


Little Platform, Big Stage

(dir Zimena Percival 2005)


Produced for the BBC's acclaimed Arena strand and to mark the extinction of London’s bus conductors, triggered by the demise in 2005 of the capital’s classic Routemasters, Zimena Percival’s enchanting Little Platform, Big Stage, packed with great old clips  and music, meets five conductors from decades past with a billion tales to tell.



Underground

(Zimena Percival 2007)


Ever wondered what the underground looks like from the drivers seat? Look no further than Arena's 2007 documentary Underground, a celebration of the world's oldest underground system. Zimena Percival's inventive film begins 150 years ago in a Victorian London of slums and gaslight and takes us on a mysterious adventure through tube history, with contributions from some of the Underground's very own staff.
