Twenty years after the end of steam.
Fourth of six programmes.
Although scheduled steam-hauled trains ceased on the mainland 20 years ago the Isle of Man was unaffected by British Rail's modernisation plans. Queen Victoria was 25 when the steam railway opened to carry passengers between Douglas and Port Erin. It's still running 114 years later - and it even has one of the original locomotives! The Victorian Steam Railway and the Manx Electric Railway are the pride of the islanders who work on them, and they attract transport enthusiasts from all over the world.
Written and narrated by Anthony Smith.
Presented by Chris Kelly Michael Barry and Jill Goolden.

11: The Seventh Age
Tsuneo Tomita , aged 80 and still an active scientist, is
Professor Blakemore's guide to the exotic world of ageing in Japan. He warns of a crisis to come. By the end of the century, one in five of us in the industrial world will be over 65. But being old need not be a frightening prospect. Nicholas Slonimsky dazzles with his piano playing; Hulda Crooks climbs mountains: both are in their 90s. What does science know of their secret?
Geriatric monkeys, rats that live in a version of Disneyland, and chemicals that rejuvenate ageing neurons are helping researchers ensure that we enjoy the wisdom of old age, rather than suffer the tragedy of stroke or senility.

Boris Karloff Anna Lee.
This classic from the Val Lewton stable was inspired by a Hogarth print of the notorious
18th-century asylum, St Mary's of Bethlehem. Boris
Karloff plays the sadistic Master Sims , so bent on preserving his niche of power that he arranges to have the troublesome Nell Bowen incarcerated in the asylum to stop her exposing his tyranny. A chilling, superb reconstruction of a hard and pitiless age....
