INDIAN HILL RAILWAYS

KALKA - SHIMLA LINE. B B C.

Director: Nick Mattingly

AWARDS

Royal Television Society Yorkshire.

Best Factual Series 2010

KALKA - SHIMLA LINE.

Shimla was once the summer capitol of the Raj. They left behind their symbols of empire and a railway but they also left a divided India. Masqsood is a Kashmiri refugee, John is a teacher looking for home. Sanjay is the Station Master looking for promotion but his boss is waiting for a transfer. But everybody is waiting for snow.

GUILD OF TELEVISION CAMERAMEN NOMINATION

AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE 2010

Indian Hill Railways, BBC2
Photography: Graham Day  and Ajay Narona
TX date/time: 16th April 2010
Type of programme: Factual

Reason for nomination: One of a series of beautifully filmed programmes. These were camera led documentaries telling the stories of many ordinary people connected with the Indian railway at Shimla, that is so high that snow arrives-to great excitement!  The cameramen got skillfully behind their subjects eyes and captured the mood and culture. Enchanting.

THE TIMES

I remember Adlestrop, the poem, because one afternoon we were forced to read it in class. I also remember a Thursday night two Octobers ago when BBC Four achieved its highest ratings for a factual programme. Ian Hislop Goes Off the Rails, about the 1963 Beeching Report, attracted 1.29 million. It was flanked by Railway Walks and Great Railway Journeys and, overall that night, BBC Four ended up with more viewers than BBC Three, ITV2, ITV3 or E4. BBC Four never forgot this lesson and has been a bit railway mad ever since. Last night it put the first of its Indian Hill Railways up against multichannel offerings including Being Human and 24 and I bet it did very nicely once again. In a continuing triumph of hope over experience, we Brits are soft on railways.
