Video: Engineering The Underground

We're rapidly approaching the end of the Underground's 150th anniversary, but the films and events continue to arrive apace. One of the best commemorations we've yet seen comes from the Institution of Civil Engineers, whose new video looks at the engineering history of the network.

The narrative covers familiar ground, but the presentation and graphics are sumptuous and superb. The film was put together by Jevan Chowdhury of Wind and Foster, in collaboration with Transport for London and London Transport Museum. It is particularly impressive for the painstaking animation of old photographs.

Book out 12 minutes of your lunch hour to enjoy the film.
