On 18 June, a documentary broadcast on Channel 5 explored the making of the AGV the next generation of  Alstom's TGV train.

The AGV is designed to reach speeds of nearly 360mph - while also being more energy-efficient than its predecessors. The programme also explored the key steps in the development of high-speed technology, including George Stephenson's 19th-century Rocket and the Japanese Bullet Train, to explain why railways are now able to safely transport more passengers at higher speeds than ever before.

In case you missed it, this programme will be broadcast again on Monday 23 July on Channel 5, and Thursday 26 July on National Geographic or
you can watch the Worlds Fastest Train online.
