The incredible tale of a truly great British icon.

From conception to preservation, actress Barbara Flynn (Cracker, Cranford, Silent Witness) narrates the wonderful untold story of the nation's favourite steam locomotive. Built in Doncaster in 1923, Flying Scotsman was both the pride of the LNER and Great Britain. Having been displayed in all her glory at the 1924 British Empire Exhibition, Flying Scotsman quickly achieved record after record. In 1928, she became the first steam engine to travel non-stop between London and Edinburgh and in 1934, was the first steam locomotive to officially be recorded travelling faster than 100mph.

Flying Scotsman won the hearts of the nation, achieving celebrity-like status amongst the British public during her days steaming up and down the country. She also wowed her adoring public farther afield when she became the only steam engine to have circumnavigated the globe, having travelled to America in 1969 and Australia in 1988.

Despite these achievements, the locomotive's future has often hung in the balance and a number of last minute rescues were needed to save her from an uncertain fate. Documenting the many highs and lows of her action packed life, this marvellous film combines stunning archive footage and photography with insightful interviews with ex-drivers, historians and past owners, to tell the incredible story of Flying Scotsman, a truly great British icon.
