Tyne and Wear Metro on TV

A four-part series telling the “human stories” of staff, passengers and communities of the Tyne and Wear Metro is to be filmed for ITV.

Camera crews recording the behind-the-scenes documentary, which has the working title ‘Metropolis’, have been granted unprecedented access to the light rail system.

Mark Robinson, creative director of production company Wise Owl Films, said: “This is the first time that a documentary series has been made on the Tyne and Wear Metro – and we feel privileged and excited to be making it.

“The Metro is an institution and a vital part of everyday life in the North East of England. On every train, on every journey and on every platform there are human stories for us to tell.”

Filming is set to take place in 2019. No date has yet been given for when the documentary will air.
