The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) London presents Engineering the London Underground celebrating the illustrious 150 year history of London's Tube network and the vital role that civil engineers played in delivering one of the world's first and busiest transport networks. The film takes viewers on a journey through the Tube's history including its period of reconstruction following the Second World War, the introduction of the world's first computer controlled underground railway on the Victoria Line, the construction of the Jubilee line and looks to the Tube's future.

The film, produced in collaboration with the London Transport Museum and Transport for London, is narrated by Eddie Butler and features photographs and footage from the Institution of Civil Engineers, British Film Institute, Crossrail, National Media Museum and TfL collections. These images were brought to life by filmmakers Wind & Foster. Show less
