Before anyone jumps on me saying "What's that got to do with trains?" the programme next Wednesday deals specifically with the operation of the Channel Tunnel.
I found last night's edition about the Channel very interesting so next week's should be well worth a look.

The 1st two were both fascinating.

I found the Channel Tunnel one very interesting. :thumbsup:

Don't think there have been many (any?) TV documentaries looking at the actual day-to-day operation of the Channel Tunnel.

It certainly conveyed the intense level of operations, as they 'channel' (ahem... ::)) Eurotunnel shuttles, Eurostars and Rail Freight trains through the tunnel. It brought into sharp focus what happens when there are delays, for whatever cause or reason.

Hopefully, others have got to watch it.

The other programmes have taken an interesting look at different aspects; taking a look at lives of people who work in and around the Channel that you probably would never give a second thought to. Like, for example, the fishermen. Quite thought-provoking, in the light of recent events. :hmmm:
