Jonathan Meades and platform 1 at Market Harborough
BBC Newsnight Feature: Maglev from Amirani Media on Vimeo.
Jonathan Meades made this film on the case for ultra high-speed railway for Newsnight in 2005.
Take a close look at the still before you play the video. It shows platform 1 at Market Harborough station, but sadly I do not think it is the great man standing there as a train speeds past. That scene can be found at 1:04 in the video.
Showing trains in Midland Mainline livery running into a pre-Eurostar St Pancras, it already has period charm.
