BBC Researchers contact Heritage Bank

In April 2012 the Heritage Bank received a request to provide assistance in making the documentary TV series “Great British Railway Journeys”.

The BBC2 programmes follow the Victorian Railway Guides of George Bradshaw and filming has been completed for an episode about the line from Portsmouth to Godalming.

Researchers were keen to obtain more information about the grand ceremony which had been held in Buriton on Saturday August 6 th 1853 when John Bonham Carter (MP for Winchester ) cut the first turf for the new rail line on his own land near to the village church and pond.

The programme is likely to be transmitted early in 2013.
