UK: The Glasgow Subway/Underground, Scotland ("The Clockwork Orange") [01:21]
UK: A collection of clips recorded on the Glasgow Subway. The system is also known as "The Clockwork Orange" because of the colour of the cars and the fact that it comprises just one, circular, route. Recorded 8th May 2003. The first three clips are at Partick station and the last one at Bridge Street station. +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- The Glasgow Subway is an underground metro line in Glasgow, Scotland. Opened on 14December 1896, it is the third-oldest underground metro system in the world after the London Underground and the Athens Metro. Formerly a cable railway, the Subway was later electrified, but its twin circular lines were never expanded. The line was originally known as the Glasgow District Subway, but was later renamed Glasgow Subway Railway. It was so called when taken over by the Glasgow Corporation who renamed it the Glasgow Underground in 1936. Despite this rebranding, many Glaswegians resolutely continued to refer to the network as "the Subway". In 2003 the name "Subway" was officially readopted by its operator, the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT). A £40000 study examining the feasibility of an expansion into the city's south side is in progress. The system is not the oldest underground railway in Glasgow; that distinction belongs to a 5 km (3.1 mi) section of the Glasgow City and District Railway opened in 1863, now part of the North Clyde Line of the suburban railway network, which runs in a sub ...

New Lanark, Scotland, World Heritage Site. [04:13]
New Lanark is a village on the River Clyde, approximately 1.4 miles (2.2 kilometres) from Lanark, in South Lanarkshire, and some 40 km southeast of Glasgow, Scotland. It was founded in 1786 by David Dale, who built cotton mills and housing for the mill workers. Dale built the mills there in a brief partnership with the English inventor and entrepreneur Richard Arkwright to take advantage of the water power provided by the only waterfalls on the River Clyde. Under the ownership of a partnership that included Dale's son-in-law, Robert Owen, a Welsh philanthropist and social reformer, New Lanark became a successful business and an epitome of utopian socialism as well as an early example of a planned settlement and so an important milestone in the historical development of urban planning.
