MOORGATE PT 1 'OUTSIDE'  by LAURENCE MARKS AND MAURICE GRAN - 6.30pm, MONDAY 29 APRIL -  NORTH LONDON TAVERN


MOORGATE PART 1  'OUTSIDE' is the first of two 45 minute plays for BBC Radio.


It tells the story of the Moorgate rail disaster that occurred during the height of the rush hour on 28 February 1975 from the moment the train hit a dead-end wall at 40 mph in the tunnel of a terminal station to the moment the last two survivors were located nine hours later.


The biggest disaster in the City of London since the Blitz, the rescue operation was unplanned for and the play describes in the most dramatic terms, how the emergency service did their jobs on the hoof, but quickly realised they were fighting a losing battle.


Laurence Marks' father was in the second carriage and was killed upon impact. It fell to Laurence to spend a year investigating the case of the 'accident'.


Do join us for what promises to be an extremely interesting evening in the company of Laurence Mark and Maurice Gran. 


Doors open: 6.30pm
