    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    Here's what I had in mind:

    Night Mail is a 1936 documentary film about a London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) mail train from London to Scotland, produced by the GPO Film Unit. A poem by English poet W. H. Auden was specially written for it, as was music by Benjamin Britten.

    The Betjeman reference was to a 1963 BBC programme showing the 24 mile S&D line from Evercreech Junction. In this first episode we reach Highbridge - then the end of passenger services.

    Here, I didn't see this film before but my goodness I remember that fortnight!

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=VTP3IPi-fug

    Snow, 1963

    "Comprising train and track footage quickly shot just before a heavy winter's snowfall was melting, the award-winning classic that emerged from the cutting-room compresses British Rail's dedication to blizzard-battling into a thrilling eight-minute montage cut to music."

    I remember that winter well, it was fairly solidly frozen for nearly three months without respite. As I recall, 1966 was nearly as bad.

    Impressive how great a depth of snow the train could shift once it was up to speed and how hard the men worked to give it a chance to get through.
