Synopsis:
Five rarely-seen colour films that offer a priceless insight into the secrets of London's bus and underground networks. Featuring archive footage from the 1930s to the 1980s, this is the story of a public transport system that has evolved to meet the ever-changing demands of a growing capital city.

All That Mighty Heart (1964)
A poetic look at the day in the life of the capital and its outlying districts, showing how the arterial transport networks efficiently bring passengers to and from work, shops, and various leisure activities. All That Mighty Heart was filmed by the Oscar-winning David Watkin and comprises footage shot from 1953 to the early 60s.
London on the Move (1970)
London's bus and underground networks bear the brunt of around eight million journeys every day. How does London Transport keep everyone, and everything, on the move? The answer is partly down to the application of modern technology.
The Nine Road (1976)
From Mortlake to Dalston, London Transport's fleet of No. 9 buses connect east and west London for nearly 19 hours a day. This film is a frank and detailed account of the operation of No. 9 buses from dawn until midnight, profiling the conductors, drivers, mechanics and controllers who strive to maintain a full and punctual service.
Moving London (1983)
A retired London Transport employee describes how the network has modernised and expanded in the 50 years since it was created. This nostalgic film includes footage of the buildings and vehicles that characterised London Transport through the Second World War, the Festival of Britain and beyond.
London Ride (1972)
Join a coach load of Continental tourists on a groovy tour of London's landmarks and glittering night life. This colourful film was produced to promote the Round London Sightseeing Tours that departed from Victoria and Piccadilly Circus.
