|Hammersmith to Whitechapel & Whitechapel to Ealing Broadway
Our Underground journey begins aboard a C stock train at Hammersmith Met station. For the first few miles the line is elevated on viaducts. At Westbourne Park we fly under the Great Western main line into Paddington. Here we enter the tunnel section of the first passenger-carrying underground railway in the world - Paddington to Farringdon! The tunnels are so dark that a special image-intensifying camera had to be used.
At Whitechapel, having traversed the northern part of the Circle Line, we transfer to a D stock District Line train for the return trip along the southern portion of the Circle. As the Circle branches off we continue through Earls Court alongside the Piccadilly line tracks to eventually
end up at Ealing Broadway. Filmed in 1989.
