Hosted by railway historian and broadcaster, Tim Dunn, the four 30-minute podcasts shine a light on the transport network, looking at the architecture and history of stations, innovation in transport and how public transport connects people and places.

In the first three episodes of the ‘Mind the Gap – Tube 160’ podcast series released today, Tim Dunn, who presents ‘Secrets of the London Underground’ on UKTV’s Yesterday channel and UKTV Play, interviews a broad range of people – united by their love of the Tube.

Special guests include Wayne Hemingway, who designed the uniforms for London Underground frontline staff; the ‘Tube Mapper’ photographer Luke Agbaimoni; Amy Lamé, the co-founder of Duckie and London’s Night Czar; and Geoff Marshall, a popular online video producer, as well as many other experts and TfL staff.

  • Episode One – Architecture
  • Episode Two – Innovation
  • Episode Three – Connecting People and Places
  • Episode Four – Christmas special with Rylan

Tim Dunn, Railway Historian and Broadcaster, said: “As a huge Tube enthusiast for all of my life, it’s a privilege to take the audience on a journey through fascinating and unusual aspects of the Tube network – to celebrate the 160 year anniversary of London Underground. Each episode is an open love letter to the Tube; sharing the enthusiasm and dedication of fellow transport lovers, customers and TfL staff.”

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
