London to Brighton.

Alexandra Palace Television Society.

" In the 1950's the BBC recorded several interludes which were shown between programmes - often because they weren't ready to broadcast the next programme, a lot of which were live.

The most famous interludes were the potters wheel, kittens playing, and this classic from 1953, a timelapse film of the journey from Victoria to Brighton by train, filmed from the drivers cab.

The cameraman had to hand-crank the camera at 2 frames per second instead of the usual 25 for the entire journey to create the effect.

Every so often he would run out of film & had to replace it.

To hide the missing gaps while he changed the roll of film, a view of the train driver at the controls was shown.

The effect is we get a view of the train rushing down the track faster than the speed of sound at 765mph. "
