The Wrong Track
Sunday 4 February 2001
Reporter John Ware
Producer Aidan Laverty
Assistant Producer Darren Kemp



John Ware reports on the state of Britain's railways. The programme details how, since privatisation, the Railtrack management have presided over a network that's gradually fallen apart - leading to the disaster at Hatfield and months of chaos for passengers. Panorama reports on why the Government's plans to rebuild the railways may not deliver.

John Ware reports on how the delays have affected one company in Yorkshire.

VideoJohn Ware answered your questions about the programme in a live forum.

Panorama left a camcorder with a firm of architects in early January. DWA Architects are based in York and are regular users of the railway system. Read their train diaries
