Windfall Films is making a TV documentary series on the history of the InterCity125.
As part of the series, we're looking for commuters who moved out of London probably in the 80ies as a direct result of the reduced journey times proffered by the 125.
It opened up commuter towns across the South driving house building and employment. If you know of someone who regularly commuted on the 125 and who moved to the suburbs specifically because of the opportunities provided by the 125 we'd love to hear from you. We're looking for people who are willing to tell us their story on camera and we're filming at the moment. Please contact graeme.thomson@windfallfilms.com. Thank you.

Thank you for posting that invitation, thomsg03 - and may I also offer you a very warm welcome to the Coffee Shop forum.  Smiley

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Network Rail say there will be eight, the same as series 1. It doesn't seem to come with a count of episodes on EPG or elsewhere, so maybe they aren't sure how many they'll do, given that they haven't made them all in advance.

Thank you for welcoming me to the site. Just a reminder that if you do know anyone who relocated out of London or any major city in the 70ies or 80ies as a result of the faster commuter times offered by the InterCity 125 we'd love to here from them. We're filming at the moment for a two part series celebrating the InterCity 125 and as part of the series I'd like to reflect the impact the 125 made to commuting. Thanks again.  graeme.thomson@windfallfilms.com

Thanks for posting, thomsg03.

I'm comfortable that your appeal to our readers to offer their experiences for your filming purposes is well within our forum rules on 'advertising'.  Indeed, I've now moved your topic to our 'Broadcast media' board, to more accurately reflect its particular content.  And this post itself will hopefully alert more readers to your research here.  Wink
