    Volume Seven Steam in 1961 This is the second of "a series within a series" as it is Ivo Peters' second steam annual, looking at various events and locations in 1961. The programme is produced from Ivo's superb 16mm colour film and covers both main line and indutrial railways, giving a unique insight into the railways of that time - now changed out of all recognittion. Highlights include everyday workings on Sapperton Bank, the Britannia Bridge, at Honiton and Wickwar Tunnels, and specials range from the Southern's "Solent Limited" to the last day of the Midland and South Western Railway. Docksides feture prominently; Weymouth Quay, Bowaters at Sittingbourne and Avonmouth Docks show three different aspects. Shunting at Staveley, Royal Observer Corps at Bournemouth West, and beautiful engines at Becton and Exeter Gasworks make this a well rounded programme. Steam is also seen from the cab of the Bristol Pullman on the Bristol to London main line.

    Volume Eight Steam in 1962 1962 was the last year before Dr. Beeching changed the face of British Railways for ever - but it was still a year of contrasts. Ivo Peters' 16mm colour film record of the changing times of the railways starts with a tour of the public industries of the Birmingham area, which boasted a wide variety of fascinating, and often immaculate, small tank engines, working in classic indutrial settings. Steam, however, is fun! Who else but Teddy Boston would do his shopping by steam roller?! A unique film of a unique man. One of the Ivo's favourite films. On BR Ivo filmed the last of the Great Western's small Saddle Tank Dock shunters, visited Swindon with the Lord Nelson and recorded the complex workings around Yeovil Town amongst others. The Saddest point of the programme appropiately ends it: the very last Pines Express on the Somerset & Dorset Railway with Evening Star.

    This is the story of Dorset's only preserved railway which opened in the 1880s and closed in the British Railway run-down period of the early 1970s. From the bleak period in 1972 came the Swanage Railway Trust who began the long and sometimes weary path to re-building the railway all the way back to Corfe Castle in 1995 and beyond to connect with the main line again in 2002. Through archive films and interviews, we hear of the re-building of the line in the late 1970s through to the 1990s, which required every piece of rail to be laid along the empty trackbed. This epic programme of two hours duration tells the whole story spanning three centuries from the 1880s through to the 21st century. Cover photographs courtesy of Andrew P M Wright Running time: 120 minutes.
