Having initially been announced over a year ago it has now been confirmed that the ITV documentary on the Tyne and Wear Metro will be screened from Tuesday 14th January at 1930 – that’s just a week away!
Titled as The Metro: A Rail Life Story the series will be four half hour episodes and will be shown on the main ITV channel nationwide. The first episode will concentrate on the big Spice Girls concert at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland with 50,000 fans heading to the concert whilst the Head of Operations spots a potential fault with the overhead line – the peril of everyday operations on the Tyne and Wear Metro!
Future episodes will look at the Tyne and Wear Metro throughout last summer including during the busy Great North Run.
* The Metro: A Rail Life Story will be shown on ITV from Tuesday 14th January 2020 at 1930. The following three episodes are expected to be shown on the next three Tuesdays.
