...at Milton Keynes Central rail station, where I work!

There's a plaque on the wall stating that the station was opened in 1982, only a year or so before this was filmed. Unfortunately the station concourse is now a mass of bus lanes, taxi ranks and one-way systems but there is still disabled access to the front door although, as it's daytime in the doc, there would be a somewhat higher level of traffic there now.

Sadly we don't see too many Toyota Celicas or Saab 99s around here any more.

To be honest watching it now its embarrassing how we treated the disabled 'way back' then. Not everywhere is now wheelchair friendly now but we have come a long way , my relative is wheelcahir bound and just simple things like ramps on every kerb at crossing points have made a vast difference . It means many disabled people can move around on their own .

In next couple of days I'll post a late 50s documentary on mental health provision - all the patients are routinely described as "mental defectives" ...
