Somerset and Dorset’s Lost Railway

'Perhaps the most loved of the railway lines axed by Dr Beeching, The Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway (The S&D) closed in 1966. Last year local film maker, David Parker, made a half hour programme for the BBC that told some of the story of the line that ran through some of the West Country’s most idyllic countryside. David will introduce a screening of the film and talk about how he came to make the programme and discover and include in the film some rare cine films that were made in the final days of the railway.’
