ABSTRACT
THE TUBE: AN UNDERGROUND HISTORY, 9PM, BBC2 TO THE surprise of many of us, last year's series The Tube turned out to be a genuinely fascinating look at the London Underground. As the network continues to undergo its biggest-ever (and seemingly endless) upgrade, this new documentary marks the Tube's 150th anniversary by telling its story, with the help of archive footage and the anecdotes and memories of some of those who work for it. Here, a station supervisor shares painful memories of one of the bleakest days in the network's history, and a customer service assistant remembers being part of a wave of new recruits from the Caribbean in the Fifties.
