Inside Central Station – 25 July 2020 – 25/7/2020 – July 25 – Saturday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 6 of 6

Documentary series following the people that work all hours to keep Scotland’s busiest train station on track, delving into the buildings history with stories of the past. Central Station has been at the heart of Glasgow for 140 years, running over 950 trains a day for 32 million passengers a year.

Day and night for one long summer we meet the people who make the station work. Central Station has long been Scotland’s busiest; it’s the northern terminus of the West Coast Main Line from London and the starting point for travel to hundreds of stations in mainland Britain.

Over the decades the station has knitted itself into the lives of many people. For generations of Glasgow folk, particularly those that work here, Central station has become part of the family. In this final episode the TRSMT music festival revellers descend on the station late at night, a special guest enjoys the London commute on the Caledonian Sleeper and we meet the oldest and youngest train cleaners in the station. Ex British Transport Police officer Bob takes a walk back in time to the 80s and we find out what’s it’s like to police the station today with Sergeant McWhirter.

Tattoo artist Lorraine compares working under the Heilanman’s umbrella today with the past and a street art mystery is revealed in the Arches bar. Staff deal with disruptions caused by overhead line problems and Drew reflects on how special his town within a city is and what it means to the people of Glasgow
