Series 1 - Episode 2 At the Double



With up to 400 trains a day running on its 62 miles of track, the Channel Tunnel is the busiest railway system in the world. And doing things at the double is key to its success. Two countries built it. There are two terminals. And there is duplication at both ends. This episode reveals how teams of two work on both sides of the Channel to keep tourists and truckers moving. But how will preparations for Brexit affect such a well-oiled system of twinning and duplication, finely tuned over 25 years?
