Yesterday continues to reveal secrets of the London Underground

UKTV has commissioned a fourth series of Secrets of the London Underground…

The ten-part series, from Brown Bob, will air on the factual channel Yesterday and free streaming service UKTV Play. The editions for hour-long slots will air later this year.

Elizabeth McKay, Director of London Transport Museum:

“We are thrilled to be working with UKTV again to share the stories and treasures from our museum archives with the public. There are still so many secret locations to explore on the Underground network, and we can’t wait to take viewers behind the scenes to reveal even more of its fascinating history.”

Secrets of the London Underground has quickly gained a loyal audience on Yesterday, reaching over 10.1m individuals across all series to date, and is among the top performing Yesterday titles on UKTV Play.

The new series is filming now, reuniting rail historian Tim Dunn (The Architecture The Railways Built) and Siddy Holloway from London Transport Museum, as they unearth more fascinating secrets about the Tube’s rich history. As part of her work developing the museum’s Hidden London programme of tours, which takes the public into secret parts of the London Underground, Siddy has the keys to many locked away places that reveal fascinating details of British social and rail history.

Chris Nix, Assistant Director at London Transport Museum, will also be acting as Historical Consultant to share the fascinating stories that were unveiled from the museum’s archives.

UKTV by head of factual and factual entertainment Helen Nightingale:

“It’s great to work with Brown Bob again, and Tim and Siddy are the perfect guides to take us underground, behind closed doors and into forgotten rail tunnels.”

Secrets of the London Underground will air in a peak time slot in 2024 on UKTV’s free-to-air Yesterday channel, with all previous series currently available to stream for free on UKTV Play.
