Going Underground: Tales from the Tube

Going Underground: Tales from the Tube, is a wonderful people’s history of the Tube. The documentary doesn’t have a central narrative or narrator, but instead focuses on interviews with people who’ve worked on the Underground and other tube enthusiasts.

Using an amazing collection of achieved photos and videos as a backdrop, it looks at the various jobs that have existed throughout the Tube’s history. Labour, race, sex and class relations all get attention and it examines how the tube was in many ways a leader in terms of the social changes that have taken place in Britain over the last 70 years.

Created by digital:works, I don’t think this has gotten anything near as much attention as it deserves. So if you do enjoy it please share it via social media and/or e-mail.
