London 7/7: Blast Train Schematics

Interesting show on BBC1 tonight about derailed trains that The Antagonist is hoping might help make a little sense of the train schematics released for 7 July, as shown below.
Derailed, BBC1
Tue 20 Sep, 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm 60mins

A powerful and moving film looking at the continuing battle for justice in the aftermath of the October 1999 Ladbroke Grove rail disaster.

Thirty one people were killed and numerous more families were torn apart by the crash when two trains collided on the same piece of track. Were these lives lost for the sake of profit? This dramatised reconstruction of real events reveals some shocking truths and poses questions that the rail industry, government and big business will find awkward to swallow.

The film follows a group of the victims' parents who have engaged themselves in a long, emotional hunt to discover and expose the truth of what really happened in the lead-up to the tragedy. Their sad but remarkable story is a testament to the strength and determination of the individual. [BBC1]
