In consequence it became necessary to send letters on special overnight trains from Euston to Carlisle - the wooden coaches of the railways carrying the iron men of the Post Office, sorting through the night. In 1983 the 42 Travelling Post Offices covered more than five million miles and carried 330 million first-class letters and two-and-a-half million Datapost bags.
Nigel Holmes travelled on the night mail trains from Whitehaven to Preston and back to Carlisle.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
