UK Rail, World Class
New programme reveals how innovation in rail is delivering for the UK
RIA has partnered with ITN Productions to launch ‘UK Rail, World Class,’ a news style programme reporting on the opportunities and challenges faced by the rail industry and the ground-breaking innovations that are reshaping the future of travel.
With passenger journeys having doubled over the past 20 years on an ageing network, national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky takes us in to the engine room of the rail industry and hears directly from those at the forefront of change. Signalling the future of the railways, ‘UK Rail, World Class’ showcases how immersive technologies, digital transformation, electrification, decarbonisation, hybrid trains and world-class engineering are just a few of the key components at the heart of improving the UK rail network.
Exploring the dynamic people, processes and products that power the railways and the broad spectrum of career and development opportunities available within the industry, the news style programme also reveals the crucial role the RIA plays in supporting the success of the industry in the UK. In an interview with Darren Caplan, Chief Executive, RIA, he illustrates the value of the industry to the UK PLC and champions the critical work being done to engage both the government and the next generation of engineers to keep our railways on track throughout Brexit and beyond.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage and expertise in storytelling, ‘UK Rail, World Class,’ combines a series of authoritative interviews, reports, case studies and sponsored profiles from leading organisations who are driving change, improving standards and innovating within the industry including Aecom, Furrer & Frey GB Ltd, Keltbray Group Holdings Ltd, National College for High Speed Rail, Rail Products UK Ltd, SNC Lavalin Atkins, Telent Technology Services Ltd and Thales UK.
