This video was created to accompany the series of radio programmes produced by the Institution of Civil Engineers North West for initial broadcast on ALL FM 96.9 and www.allfm.org, called Making Manchester:
The engineering of the first modern city.
Here Katie Belshaw of the Museum of Science and Industry is interviewed
on the site of the world’s oldest intercity railway station, and talks
about how Britain’s early railways transformed society.
