: Derailed

On 5 October 1999, 31 people died and hundreds were injured when two trains collided at Ladbroke Grove in west London. This fact-based drama, which examines the fight for justice by victims' families and the disturbing findings of the Cullen Inquiry, poses awkward questions. Were lives lost for the sake of profit? Continues after the news at 10.35pm.

DRAMA Derailed 9.00pm, 10.35pm BBC1
The Paddington rail disaster of 1999 killed 31 and led to huge convulsions in a rail industry that was already facing criticism after the Southall crash two years earlier. Here, writer Stephen Greenhorn uses official transcripts to compile a dramatised account of the Paddington collision, focusing on the impact on bereaved families.
Director Kenny Glenaan (of the brilliant Gas Attack) brings a typically naturalistic touch to Derailed as we follow three stories: those of the parents of victim Elaine Kellow; the widow of Michael Hodder, who was driving one of the trains involved in the collision; and Railtrack's then chief executive, Gerald Corbett (all played by actors).
The actual crash is dealt with very well - we simply see fire engulfing our screens, intercut with news footage from the day. And the grief and later anger of the relatives is vivid and upsetting - there's a particularly harrowing scene where Elaine Kellow's parents identify her body. But Derailed goes so far out of its way to be understated that, in television-drama terms, it's rather flat. (Alison Graham)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
