Tonight on BBC 2 from 7:10pm to 8:10pm

Timeshift: Between the Lines - Railways in Fiction and Film

Andrew Martin investigates the ways in which trains have been depicted in literature and on film. Beginning by revealing how they were initially used as frightening symbols of the impersonal machine age, he moves on to such works as E Nesbit's The Railway Children, which show them in a more affectionate light, and explores their cinematic role in The 39 Steps and Brief Encounter
