Once again London Underground opens its doors to record the day-to-day life of the 16,500 men and women who run a network of 275 stations, 507 trains and 300 miles of track. Every year more then one billion people use the tube; commuters, holidaymakers, day-trippers, students and overseas visitors – that’s three million journeys a day.
In series 3 of this award-winning ITV docu-soup we go behind the scenes to tell more stories of the dedicated staff who work for LU and visit some of the lost property system, see the stress that abusive customers cause and spend time with the Emergency Response Team, as they hold their annual rehearsal. The series contains the realities of working and travelling underneath a thriving metropolis.
A picture gallery, footage of trains and old tube stations and the two episodes filmed on the 7th July 2005, ‘The Tube Under Attack’. This two part special highlights the quiet heroism and battling determination of LU staff as they deal with unexpected tragedy.
