Greatest Britons: George Stephenson – GB 040521


Sven Longshanks and Max Musson discuss the Victorian engineer who became the father of railways.

George Stephenson lived his early life around the coal pits and became an expert engineer through trial and error. despite being illiterate.

His nickname is where the term ‘Geordie’ came from, after he was the first to invent a miner’s safety lamp, tested by waving the lamp around close to a gas leak.

He was beset by snobbery all his life, but managed to rise above this with his ingenuity.

He ended up creating the first passenger trains, designing them for both Britain and America and his design could not be improved upon for 150 years.


Presented by Sven Longshanks and Max Musson
