Last Episode of the The Tube TV Series tonight on ITV1

The Tube on TV goes retro

Just a reminder that tonight at 7.30pm on ITV1 (London region) is the last episode of The Tube a "fly on the wall" documentary TV series about life on the London Underground from the perspective of the Tube's employees.

This 8th and last episode - Moving On (Old & New) looks at how stations, rolling stock trains and names have changed on the Tube from 1860s to today. We'll see how "Jason Collins has managed the state-of-the-art Canary Wharf station, but must now get used to running historic Waterloo and security conscious Westminster".

Apparently for those of you with alternative regions of ITV - if you have Sky Digital, you can retune your TV to watch ITV London temporarily. Also the whole series may well be repeated on Sky Travel.

Sorry I've been a bit remiss about reporting when these have been on, as there have been lots of gaps in the programming and I've not been able to just think "Ah, every Thursday on ITV1 at 7.30pm", but I hope those who watch enjoy it anyway!

Here's also a screengrab from one of the episodes that Angela from Mosaic Productions kindly sent me some time ago of staff member John Polley and his model Tube railway (www.metromodels.net) that was featured in one of the earlier episodes in December.
